Be interesting to know cheers all

Shaun

Escape and evasion, yes a more intensive course than your average aircrew were given (here you go, here's a map and some chocolate, do try and avoid Jerry)

SOE agents, as part of their initial training took part in orienteering (night and day).

Certainly part of training for FANY at Beaulieu and a good section on it the book 'The way back' although this is a git to get hold of. (published in the fifties)

Be very careful about loaning original items...also, please keep an eye out for :
*Still missing* Because some folks are devoid of an ounce of honesty or integrity.
Women's Navy Great Coat
Green floor length 1930s evening dress with sleeves set on net.
Blue and white rayon dress with peplum
Black velvet halter necked dress with silver shot thread skirt (may still have Harrods label in it) I have photos of all of these items and I know where they are in Scunthorpe, but would appreciate a nod if they come up for sale. [/color]

I agree Dan the "shadow" pictures do look like a Sig of some variety. However my first thoughts were a Breatta. Be interesting to see what you can come up with.

Shaun

to the original question ,the e+ e program was originaly run from m19 room 900 they where staved of funds & eqipment right through the war as the intelligence branches throught that this was a drain on money which could be spent better ,after the "pat & comet line" collapses the lines to southern france /spain exit ,had to be re-routed & many escape & evaders came out by sea under vladimir bouryschkine he used the " spacial navy which was pat of the intelligence service or coast watching flotilla (cwf)this was used to take agents & supplies to europe & had no return loads so would bring back any escape or evaders others used the post of canet-plage in operation blue bottle, there was spacial training for soe sas & evaders & many people from european countys risked the lives of there familys to get allied personal back through the many routes which we should never forget , my specalist subject !!!!
