E McCormac (Australian escaper from Japanese), Jacqueline Nearn (Stationer Circuit and a rare signature) plus a couple we cannot identify. Jacqueline Nearne MBE (27 May 1916 in Brighton, England 15 August 1982 in London, England) was a secret agent for the British Special Operations Executive (SOE) in Nazi-occupied France during World War II.
Nearne's fluency in French quickly brought her to the attention of F Section, a branch of the SOE. She trained as a courier in mid-1942. She was also taught Morse code transmissions using a suitcase radio, which would help her in her work with the French Resistance. She was the first woman, along with Odette Sansom, to train at Training School 51 Ringway Parachute School. On 25 January 1943, she was parachuted into France to work for the vast Stationer circuit in central France.
Despite the risks of being exposed or betrayed she travelled by train. She maintained contact with the neighbouring'Headmaster' network and other SOE networks in the Paris area. She carried spare parts for radios inside a cosmetics bag.
