EEIE-nav-960
These are British and Commonwealth escapers and evaders listed by their MI9 report numbers. Up until June 1944 evaders in northern Europe (other than Scandinavia) generally tried to reach England, usually through Spain, but after the Allied landings in Normandy, they tended to evade in the country in which they found themselves, sheltered by local people, and sometimes resistance organisations, until the advancing Allied forces reached them.

Escaper here means escaping from the Germans - many men were also interned by the French when they reached the ZNO
It may be assumed that airmen with FTR (failed to return) dates were evaders unless otherwise noted
St Valery refers to St Valery-en-Caux where the Highland 51st Division were forced to surrender 12 June 1940
Miranda refers to the Spanish concentration camp at Miranda-del-Ebro where so many men were held for varying amounts of time
MMB refers to the Mixed Medical Board in Marseille which passed (sometimes fraudulently) injured servicemen for repatriation
St Hippolyte refers to escapes from the French prison near Nimes where the Allied internees of Detachment W were held from Jan 41 to Mar 42
Fillerin refers Norbert Fillerin and his family of Renty (Pas-de-Calais) who helped escapers and evaders throughout the war
Note that the Organisation (later known as the PAO) can now, in many cases, be positively identified as helping specific escapers and evaders
# Gnr Sanson was one of several shipwrecked seamen held by the Vichy French at Conakry who were helped to 'escape' by a French officer
* Pte James Cromar was the first of many escapers and evaders brought out by the Comete escape line
Sgt N G Parsons from OADU Blenheim Z7678 should have been included here but he was killed on Malta before he could return home
The last of these men - P/O Allen - left Gibraltar for England 22 November 41

FTR Nov 41 - Pyrenees Dec 41 to Barcelona Consulate

Escaper here means escaping from the Germans - some men were still being interned by the French when they reached the ZNO
It may be assumed that airmen with FTR (failed to return) dates were evaders unless otherwise noted
St Valery refers to St Valery-en-Caux where the Highland 51st Division were forced to surrender 12 June 1940
Miranda refers to the Spanish concentration camp at Miranda-del-Ebro where so many men were held for varying amounts of time
MMB refers to the Mixed Medical Board in Marseille which passed (sometimes fraudulently) injured servicemen for repatriation
St Hippolyte refers to escapes from the French prison near Nimes where the Allied internees of Detachment W were held from Jan 41 to Mar 42
Fillerin refers Norbert Fillerin and his family of Renty (Pas-de-Calais) who helped escapers and evaders throughout the war
Note that the Organisation is now referred to as the Pat Line or PAO following the arrest of Ian Garrow 10 October 1941
* Sgt Philip Herbert was the first evader recorded by Louis Nouveau in Marseille - also the first evader helped directly by Pat O'Leary
Note that the Comete escape line crossed the extreme western Pyrenees and generally delivered their 'parcels' safely to the British Consulate
The last of these men - Sgt Mackenzie RAF - left Gibraltar for England 4 March 42

Escaper here means escaping from the Germans - some men were still being interned by the French when they reached the ZNO
It may be assumed that airmen with FTR (failed to return) dates were evaders unless otherwise noted
Note that some aircrew came down in the French ZNO where the question of escaper or evader from the Germans doesn't apply
Miranda refers to the Spanish concentration camp at Miranda-del-Ebro where so many men were held for varying amounts of time
Fort de la Rivere refers to escapes from the French prison near Monaco where the Allied internees of Detachment W were held from Mar 42 to Sept 42
Fillerin refers Norbert Fillerin and his family of Renty (Pas-de-Calais) who helped escapers and evaders throughout the war
SIS/MI9 Operation Bluebottle II - HMS Tarana collected Pat Line escapers from St Pierre Plage near Narbonne the night of 15/16 Aug 1942
SIS/MI9 Operation Titania - Seawolf collected Pat Line escapers from Canet Plage near Perpignan the night of 21/22 Sept 42
Note that the Comete escape line crossed the extreme western Pyrenees and generally delivered their 'parcels' safely to the British Consulate
The last of these men - Sgt Fox RAF - left Gibraltar for England 30 Sept 42

Fort de la Rivere refers to escapes from the French prison near Monaco where the Allied internees of Detachment W were held from Mar 42 to Sept 42
