I am interested in putting together an MI-9 Briefing display, mainly these were for RAF Aircews, etc. Was wondering if anyone on here has any pictures of any escape items?? Im after what was held insdie the Cricket Bat and how the codes worked in the letters to the PoW's.
Also would the Intelligence Corps have been responsible for these briefings or would the briefings have been carried out by ex-PoW's would had made it home?? Personally i think it would have been the second...


Many thanks

Shaun
