Nazis



There are Nazi Jews and there are liberal Jews.

Zionist Menachem Begin became chief of the Zionist youth movement Betar in Poland.

Reportedly, Begin and his Betar members wore brown shirts and used the fascist salute. (Cached )

Menachem Begin

Hitler came to power in 1933 and he had the support of Zionist Jews.

It has been argued that Hitler may have been Jewish. (Hitler was Jewish? )

In 1933, the Zionist Federation of Germany sent a memorandum of support to the Nazi Party.

The World Zionist Organization Congress in 1933 defeated a resolution calling for action against Hitler by a vote of 240 to 43.

The World Zionist Organization 'became the principal distributor of Nazi goods throughout the Middle East and Northern Europe'. (Cached)

Both Hitler and the Zionists believed:

1. There should be a homeland for the Jews

2. Might was right.

Many German Jews disagreed with the Nazis and the Zionists. Many German Jews were liberals and they wanted to stay in Germany.

Heydrich

Heydrich, a leading Nazi, supported the idea of a homeland for the Jews.

Heydrich may have been Jewish (Reinhard Heydrich who masterminded the Holocaust ).

In May 1935, Reinhardt Heydrich wrote an article, 'The Visible Enemy', for Das Schwarze Korps, the SS official organ.

He wrote:

"The time cannot be far distant when Palestine will again be able to accept its sons who have been lost to it for over a thousand years. Our good wishes together with our official good will go with them."

(Karl Schleunes, The Twisted Road to Auschwitz, pp. 193-4 - A NAZI TRAVELS T0 PALESTINE AND TELLS ABOUT IT IN THE ASSAULT ...)

In 1934, SS officer Leopold von Mildenstein and Zionist Federation official Kurt Tuchler toured Palestine.

(Jacob Boas, "A Nazi Travels to Palestine," History Today, London, January 1980, pp. 33-38.)

Von Mildenstein wrote a series of articles for the Berlin daily Der Angriff that were printed in 1934 under the heading "A Nazi Travels to Palestine."

The articles praised the pioneering spirit and achievements of the Jews who had left Europe and settled in Palestine.

Der Angriff issued a medal, with a Swastika on one side and a Star of David on the other, to commemorate the joint SS-Zionist visit.

The official SS newspaper, Das Schwarze Korps, proclaimed its support for Zionism in a May 1935 front-page editorial:

"The time may not be too far off when Palestine will again be able to receive its sons who have been lost to it for more than a thousand years. Our good wishes, together with official goodwill, go with them."

Four months later, a similar article appeared in the SS paper.

(The Order of the Death's Head, Ballantine, 1971, 1984, p. 377. Erich Kern, ed., Verheimlichte Dokumente, Munich: FZ-Verlag, 1988, p. 184. Das Schwarze Korps, Sept. 26, 1935. Quoted in: F. Nicosia, The Third Reich and the Palestine Question,1985, pp. 56-57. Zionism and the Third Reich)

Eichmann

In his book The Order of the SS (1981), Professor Frederic Reider explains how the Nazi Third Reich and Zionist Haganah worked together to encourage Jews to move to Palestine. (National Medical Association).

"At the time when Eichmann took over the Sub-department IV B4 in the R.S.H.A., which had been established to settle the Jewish question, he (Eichmann) was not himself anti-Semitic.

"His functions led him to collaborate closely with the World Zionist Organisation and to make contact with the leaders of the secret Zionist organisation, Haganah.

"He even went himself to Palestine in 1937, in the company of Oberscharfuhrer S.S. Sergeant Hagen, the successor to Leopold von Midenstein, to examine the problem....

"By the end of 1939, 150,000 Austrian Jews had left, by choice, to go to live in Palestine, as had also 120,000 German Jews and 78,000 from Bohemia/Moravia. This emigration had been organised by the S.D., with Haganah’s approval, and was carried out clandestinely by boat, despite the draconian measures taken by Britain to stop it..."

Eichman also had the Madagascar Plan, whereby a national Jewish homeland would be set up in Madagascar.

Himmler and Heydrich approved, and on 18th June 1940 Hitler himself told Mussolini 'an Israeli state might be set up in Madagascar'. The project came to nothing. (National Medical Association)

Jewish historian David Cesarani, in Eichmann: His Life and Crimes, states that as a child Eichmann was persecuted because he looked Jewish.

Eichmann's stepmother had Jewish relations and Eichman associated with Jews. Eichmann learned Hebrew, visited Palestine and worked closely with Zionists preparing Jews for emigration. (eichmann was jewish hurricane katrina was a regional)


Himler

Himmler's SS cooperated with the Haganah, the Zionist underground military organization in British -run Palestine.

Reportedly, Himmler's grandfather was Jewish. (Himmler relative marries Israeli - Israel News, Ynetnews / eichmann was jewish hurricane katrina was a regional )

The German SS secretly supplied weapons to Jewish settlers for use in clashes with Palestinian Arabs. (F. Nicosia, Third Reich (1985), pp. 63-64, 105, 219-220.)

Abu Qatada

Qatada

According to the BBC, 9 April 2008, "Islamic preacher Abu Qatada has won an appeal against deportation from the UK which could lead to him being freed.

"Qatada - in prison pending deportation to Jordan - has been dubbed 'Osama bin Laden's right-hand man in Europe'.
(Preacher Abu Qatada wins appeal )

According to freedomfiles.org (http://www.freedomfiles.org/war/abuqatada.htm):

For 8 years, from 1994 to 2002, Al Qaeda’s alleged chief recruiter in Europe, Abu Qatada, was allowed to live undisturbed in West London.

Why did the UK grant Abu Qatada asylum and protect him against extradition requests by other countries ?

Since March 2005, he has been released again and put under "control orders" (house arrest).

The Times, (Al-Qaeda cleric exposed as an MI5 double agent - World - Times Online / http://www.timesonline.co.uk/printFriendly/0,,1-3-1050175,00.html) London, 25 March 2004, reported that Abu Qatada, an Al-Qaeda cleric, is an MI5 agent.

Among the scores of young militants who came to visit him in London was the chief suspect in the Madrid train bombings.

His followers also included Richard Reid, the shoe bomber.

A ruling by the Special Immigrations Appeals Commission revealed that there was evidence to show that Abu Qatada “has been concerned in the instigation of acts of international terrorism”.

MI5 agents held meetings with the cleric.

He disappeared from his family home in West London just before the UK's terror law came into force.

Indignant French officials accused MI5 of helping the cleric to abscond. While he remained on the run, one intelligence chief in Paris was quoted as saying: “British intelligence is saying they have no idea where he is, but we know where he is and, if we know, I’m quite sure they do.”

Almost a year later Abu Qatada was found hiding in a flat not far from Scotland Yard.

Mr Justice Collins ruled that the cleric was “at the centre in the UK of terrorist activities associated with al-Qaeda”.

He is a Jordanian national who arrived here with a forged United Arab Emirates passport in September 1993 claiming asylum.

Jordan told Britain that he had been convicted for terrorist attacks in Amman seven months before September 11.

Spanish investigators produced evidence that a militant they had in custody in Madrid — Abu Dahdah — had visited the cleric more than 25 times, bringing him money and new recruits.

According to The Independent on Sunday (MI5, Camp Delta, and the story that shames Britain - Americas ... / http://news.independent.co.uk/uk/politics/story.jsp?story=644278):

Bisher al-Rawi is a British resident being held at Guantanamo.

In the letter, seen by The Independent on Sunday, Mr al-Rawi alleges that:

* He was recruited by MI5 weeks after 11 September and was in contact with Abu Qatada.

* MI5 always knew where Abu Qatada was hiding after he fled his home in west London hours before new powers to detain suspects without charge came into force in December 2001. He lived at Elephant & Castle, close to MI5's headquarters, for nine months before being arrested.

* Throughout this time, Mr al-Rawi had 'numerous' meetings with three MI5 agents - 'Alex', 'Matthew' and 'Martin' - in hotels and bars in London, passingmessages between them and Abu Qatada.

* After Mr al-Rawi expressed anxieties his safety was at risk from his contacts with MI5, a service lawyer "assured" him that it would "aid him in his defence [and] would appear as witnesses on his behalf".

(VICE: Tory lord confesses to wild sex orgy with 4 vice girls)

Reportedly there have been "all-night orgies of spanking, bondage and lesbian lust".

Reportedly a male gigolo joined Laidlaw "in Monte Carlo's luxurious Hermitage Hotel for an anything-goes night of shame".

Reportedly, Laidlaw "liked to watch the male model, called Ben."

READ: Lord Laidlaw’s letter of confession to the News of the World

According to the News Of The World, one of the Madams Laidlaw does business with is called Sara. She helps run London escort agency Role Models.

"Sara has a string of international models plus well-known British actresses and TV presenters on her books, secretly working as part-time escorts," writes The News Of The World."

Sara said Laidlaw "liked her to send a selection of men over to see him".

Laidlaw was one of the donors to the Conservative Party who were questioned by police investigating 'cash for peerages" claims.

Reportedly, Laidlaw and wife Christine have a £4million vineyard near St Tropez, a £3million apartment in Monte Carlo, a £10 million estate near Cape Town, South Africa, a £2million home in London's Eaton Square, a Scottish mansion called The Royal Palace, and a £14million stately home in Hampshire.

Treaty of Union

2. James Douglas, 2nd Duke of Queensberry was very influential in bringing about the Treaty of Union in 1707.

The same evening the 2nd Duke was signing the Act of Union, his son, the Earl of Drumlanrig, is said to have roasted a servant boy on a spit in an oven in the kitchens of his house in Edinburgh. (Cached Cached)

3. Lord Carloway is a Scottish judge.

(Scottish judges are controversial - Police chief- Lockerbie evidence was faked / aangirfan: Aamer Anwar, Mohammed Siddique and Scotland's ...)

In 2007, Lord Carloway asked his fellow judges to investigate top Scottish defence solicitor Aamer Anwar after Anwar criticised the conviction of Mohammed Atif Siddique.

Anwar described some of the evidence against Siddique as "farcical" and said the trial had been conducted in an atmosphere of intolerance and repression against Muslims. The conviction was a "tragedy for justice and for freedom of speech." ( Judge calls for trial of terror case lawyer UK news The Guardian )

At Siddique's trial, computer expert Michael Dickson gave evidence about Siddique's laptop computer.

According to
http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/:

"The reason Dickson was upset has been erased from this version of the story, but his testimony pointed out that the incriminating videos found on the laptop all had creation dates LATER than the time the laptop was confiscated from the suspect!

"He told the court: 'An initial examination of this system revealed it was last activated between approximately 2219 BST and 2330 BST on 5 April 2006. This immediately struck us as being unusual as we were informed that the computer had been seized from the accused's possession at about 2000 BST the same date.'

"Mr Dickson said further examination revealed that the times and dates associated with more than 200 files on the system had been updated between these times."


Siddique was found guilty of providing training material on bomb-making and spreading terrorist propaganda on websites. He was given 8 years in jail. Anwar said Siddique was merely doing "what millions of young people do every day, looking for answers on the internet".

According to The Sunday Herald, 27 April 2008, (Legal luminaries defend Aamer Anwar):

"The most celebrated names in the English legal establishment have savaged the Scottish justice system for undermining human rights and freedom of speech through threats to prosecute the Scottish lawyer Aamer Anwar for contempt of court in the wake of a terror trial."

Anwar faces being charged with contempt.

Gareth Peirce, who defended the Birmingham Six and Guildford Four, said the treatment of Anwar went against United Nations conventions which guarantee the independence of lawyers. (Legal luminaries defend Aamer Anwar)

Imran Khan, the London solicitor who acted for the family of Stephen Lawrence, said: "There should be no attempt to silence lawyers. If lawyers can't speak out then one of the bedrocks of justice - the right to highlight a miscarriage of justice - just goes. I could never anticipate such a thing happening in England. From across the border, this all seems bizarre. I hope common sense prevails."

Michael Mansfield, one of the top five QCs in England, said: "We need independent strong lawyers who will speak out."

Baroness Helena Kennedy said: "This is exactly the sort of thing a young lawyer does when they are describing what their client felt. To take it to the stage of contempt of court is excessive."


Rudolf Hess

4. The Duke of Buccleuch

(Sources : http://www.eyespymag.com/intv.html
http://www.taivaansusi.net/historia/Hess.htm
http://www.cpmac.com/ang/article.php3?id_article=402)

The Duke of Buccleuch and Prince George, Duke of Kent, were allegedly involved in a plot with Rudolf Hess and MI6.

In 1941 there was a large 'peace party' in Britain which allegedly included many aristocrats such as the Duke of Buccleuch, many MPs, many members of the security services and members of the Royal Family.

The 'peace party' wanted to do a deal with Hitler. Some members of the 'peace party' admired the Nazis; some did not. Prince George, Duke of Kent, was reportedly a member of the group that wanted peace.

Lynn Picknett writes: "in 1942 the Duke of Kent was acting as political advisor for George VI... It wasn’t so much that he was pro-Nazi or sucking up to Hitler; he was simply pro-peace.'

Double Standards: The Rudolf Hess Cover-up' by Lynn Picknett, Clive Prince & Stephen Prior argues that:

1. Hess flew to Scotland in 1941 with Hitler's blessing.

2. Hess was to meet with a faction of British royalty and the aristocracy who wanted to arrange peace between Britain and Nazi Germany.

Hess is reported to have landed at the Duke of Hamilton's home at Dungavel House.

According to one account, 'two Czech Hurricane pilots who intercepted a lone Messerschmitt heading towards the'Firth of Clyde on the evening of May 10 were told not to attack it...

'A member of the Womens Auxiliary air Force, stationed that night at Dungavel House, remembers the landing lights on the Duke's private airstrip being on, shortly before Hess's plane crashed, despite blackout regulations.'

The Duke of Kent was said to have been at Dungavel, waiting for Hess. The Duke of Kent was involved in a motoring accident with a coal lorry the next morning not far from Dungavel House. His passenger was the Duke of Buccleuch, 'well known for his anti-war, pro-German sentiments prior to 1939'.

According to 'Double Standards: The Rudolf Hess Cover-Up':

1. Churchill and his faction got to Hess first when his plane landed and locked him up, even though Hess had been guaranteed safe passage by King George VI.

2. It is possible that the Duke of Kent rescued Hess and tried to fly to Sweden to continue secret peace negotiations.

3. The Duke's plane crashed approximately two miles from where Hess was kept on the shores of Loch More. Hess may have died in the plane crash. The plane crash may not have been accidental.To many members of the 'peace party', the real enemy was the Soviet Union. They wanted Hitler to wage war on Stalin.

The Duke of Buccleuch was put under virtual "house arrest" for the remainder of the war.

Clive Prince writes: 'Churchill was in a very, very insecure position politically in May 1941. In fact, three days before Hess arrived, there had been a vote of no-confidence in Churchill. He didn’t have the support of the aristocracy or the support of MI6 and the King. But the Hess affair basically gave Churchill the opportunity to blackmail his opponents who were involved with the Hess flight into supporting him...

"He also used the Hess flight to ensure that Hitler went ahead with his attack on Russia six weeks after Hess arrived...."

"We’re certain that MI6 was totally involved in the Hess affair - they weren’t luring him over: they were inviting him over. This was because MI6 were supportive of the idea of ending the War with Germany. MI6 saw the real enemy as being Russia. Sir Stuart Menzies - the head of MI6 - advised Churchill to stay out of things and let the Nazis and the Russians get on with it.."



Wilde and Lord Alfred Douglas

5. Viscount Drumlanrig

( Source: http://www.rainbownetwork.com/Culture/detail.asp?iData=18807&iCat=87&iChannel=15&nChannel=Culture )

A new biography of Oscar Wilde claims that Wilde's trial and imprisonment was a cover up for a gay affair between the Prime Minister, the Earl of Rosebery, and Viscount Drumlanrig.

The Secret Life of Oscar Wilde, by Neil McKenna, suggests that the prime minister, the Earl of Rosebery, had a gay relationship for over two years with Viscount Drumlanrig, the older brother of Wilde’s own lover, Lord Alfred Douglas.

McKenna told the Sunday Times that, “Oscar was sacrificed to save Rosebery and the Liberals.”

The book says that the Marquess of Queensbury, the father of Drumlanrig and Douglas, was so furious that both his sons were gay that he threatened to reveal the PM’s own homosexuality.

Wilde’s trial was rushed through in order to “buy off” Queensbury and save the PM’s reputation, although Queensbury later called him “a Jew nancy boy” and “that bloody bugger”.

The book also suggests that the relationship between Rosebery and Drumlanrig was instrumental to Drumlanrig being made the PM`s private secretary and eventually a Lord.

The Sunday Times quotes Philip Hoare, who has himself written a biography on Wilde, as saying that McKenna’s theory was realistic, as he believed Wilde had been a political pawn. “The Liberals saw Wilde, as it were, taking all this decadence to the suburbs. They needed to stop it.” It also mentions Wilde’s grandson, Merlin Holland opinion that “Queensbury had lost one son to this ‘unmentionable vice’ and didn’t want another lost.”

Ian Fleming - author of James Bond


Ian Fleming (1908 -1964), grandson of the banker Robert Fleming, wrote the James Bond novels.

In Dr No Bond meets Honeychile Rider whose bottom is "almost as firm and rounded as a boy's".

What do we know about the real Ian Fleming?

The source for most of the following is the excellent Ian Fleming -The Man Behind James Bond by Andrew Lycett.

BEFORE WORLD WAR II

1. William Plomer's Turbott Wolfe was published in 1925.

In this novel, the homosexual Plomer tackled gay relationships.

The teenage Ian Fleming was so impressed by Turbot Wolfe that he wrote a fan letter to the author.

Ian and the gay William Plomer became very close friends. (Lycett)

2. Ian Fleming attended Eton, the all boys private school. Some poems he wrote there are signed with the 'sexually ambiguous name Cary Anan'. (Lycett)

3. After Eton, Ian Fleming studied in Austria.

He decided to translate the text of Anja and Esther, a play by Klaus Mann, the homosexual son of Thomas Mann, the author of Death in Venice . Anja and Esther was Ian's first publication. (Lycett)

Ian's favourite book was The Magic Mountain by Thomas Mann.

4. In Austria, Ian found that a number of young women threw themselves at him. He wrote in his notebook about how these heterosexual couplings of Austrians with Anglo-Saxons could be 'so distasteful'.

Ian hiked in the Austrian hills with his male friends. Sometimes they spent a couple of nights in Alpine huts. (Lycett)

5. In the summer of 1929 Ian and his mother were on holiday in Corsica. Ian met up with two homosexuals with whom he passed the time playing bridge. (Lycett)

6. Back in London, while strolling down Bond Street, Ian spotted, in the window of a bookshop, a book of poetry entitled Pansies. Ian entered the bookshop to make enquiries about the book. (Lycett)

7. In 1935 Ian went to work as a stockbroker with the firm of Rowe and Pitman in London. Lancy Hugh Smith, the firm's senior partner was a bachelor. Lancy got on well with Ian who was good at charming older men. One former colleague of Ian's described Ian as being 'a hell of a tart'. (Lycett)

8. In his late twenties, Ian was still living at home with his 'overbearing' mother. Eventually he bought a central London flat. (Lycett)

9. One of Ian's female friends was Lady Mary Pakenham. According to Lady Mary, Ian was feminine and nervous and he often had a look of melancholy and loss.

According to Lady Mary, "the average girl simply did not like him." At parties, Ian would initiate a conversation with a put-down. (Lycett)

10. In some of Ian's erotic fantasies, there were schoolmistresses who whipped people. According to Lycett, Ian had a large collection of books about flagellation. (Lycett)

THE WAR YEARS

11. During World War II, Ian worked for Naval Intelligence.

12. At this time, two of Ian's friends were Ann O'Neill, who strongly fancied Ian, and Sefton Delmer, an expert on black propaganda.

According to Ann, Delmer "rouses all Ian's brain mania, plus his sublimated homosexualism." (Lycett)

On the subject of marriage, Ian told a friend Peter Smithers: "I can't see anything in it for me." (Lycett)

Ian was eventually persuaded or manipulated into marrying Ann when he was aged 43. It was not a happy marriage.

13. One evening in London, in 1943, Ian stepped into a pub off Piccadilly and got talking to a stranger, who turned out to be the homosexual poet James Kirkup. Ian asked for Kirkup's address. (Lycett)

14. At a Christmas day party, in 1943, Ian gave each of the female guests a book of Verlaine's poems, with suitable passages marked by Ian. Ann O'Neill found that her passage referred to lesbian love. Paul Verlaine's poetry celebrates homosexuality. (Lycett)

15. One of Ian's American contacts was Lieutenant Alan Schneider of the US navy. Ian told Schneider that "men were the only real human beings, the only ones he could be friends with." (Lycett)

16. Ian attended an Anglo-American naval conference in Jamaica. He told his friend Ivar Bryce: "When we have won this blasted war, I am going to live in Jamaica ... and write books." (Lycett)

Jamaica was to become, for a time, a place that attracted many famous gay men, such as Ian's friend Noel Coward.

According to Ian, Kingston, the capital, "would provide you with every known amorous constellation and permutation." (Lycett)

1945-1952

16. Ian went to work for The Sunday Times as foreign manager. Many of the journalists he worked with, such as Antony Terry and Henry Brandon, had links to the intelligence services. According to Anthony Cavendish, a former British agent, the newspaper group for which Ian worked was happy to take on MI6 people as foreign correspondents. (Lycett).

17. In 1946, aged 38, Ian was smoking 70 cigarettes and drinking a bottle of gin each day. (Lycett)

18. On Jamaica, Ian built a house called Goldeneye. Ian employed a houseboy and other staff for this bachelors' paradise. When Ivar Bryce and John Fox-Strangeways came to stay with Ian, the three of them would swim naked before breakfast. (Lycett)

Ian's first tenant at Goldeneye was his gay friend Noel Coward.

19. Around 1948, Ann O'Neill wrote a fictionalised account of her relationship with Ian. In this story, Ian is called Gervase. Ann explained that Gervase (Ian) was attractive to both men and women and his services were solicited by "middle-aged men of medium eminence."

Ann once told Evelyn Waugh that Ian's "only happiness is pink gin, golf clubs and men." (Lycett)

20. Ann divorced her husband Viscount Rothermere. In 1952, she became pregnant. Ian, aged 43, decided to marry her.

1952 - 1964

21. Marriage led Ian to start writing his Bond books. It was a form of escape.

22. Ian and Ann often took separate holidays.

23. Ian traveled to Jamaica as often as possible. Among the guests at Goldeneye at this time was Angus Wilson who lived in Jamaica with his companion Odo Cross, a former Guards officer who liked to wear his mother's pearls. (Lycett)

24. Ann and Ian were friends of the reportedly gay writer Somerset Maugham and they visited him at his villa in the South of France. Ian adopted a 'fawning role' with Maugham and Ann was struck by the similarities between the two writers. Both liked exotic-smelling soaps in their bathrooms. Ann had "a curious feeling that they both regarded 'women' with mistrust". (Lycett)

25. Truman Capote stayed at Goldeneye and Ian described him as being a 'fascinating companion'.

Errol Flynn was another visitor to Goldeneye.

The north coast of Jamaica was seen as having a growing gay enclave. (Lycett)

26. Ann began a long relationship with Hugh Gaitskell, leader of the United Kingdom's Labour Party, and seen as being a possible future Prime Minister. Ann reported to her friend Beaverbrook that Gaitskell was a "changed man - all he wants is wine, women and song". (Lycett)

Meanwhile, Ian was having a relationship with a wealthy Jewish woman in Jamaica, called Blanche Blackwell.

27. When Ian's four-year-old son Caspar came out to Jamaica, Ian noted that Caspar wore a hibiscus flower in his ear and called himself Mary.

When the family went to Austria, Caspar was dressed in lederhosen. (Lycett)

28. In 1957, Ian found himself in a Dean's Bar.

This was a gay bar, in Tangier in Morocco.

Ian had chosen Tangier as a place to meet retired MI5 agent John Collard who was based in South Africa.

Ian wanted to talk to Collard in connection with research for a book. (Lycett)

29. Ian liked Venice and when he traveled there with Ann he gave her a copy of Thomas Mann's Death in Venice, the story of a man's love for a boy. (Lycett)

30. In Dr No, we read of Honeychile: "It was a beautiful back. The skin was a very light uniform café au lait with the sheen of dull satin. The gentle curve of the backbone was deeply indented, suggesting more powerful muscles than is usual in a woman, and the behind was almost as firm and rounded as a boy's."

In 1963, Cyril Connolly wrote a parody of Bond for the London Magazine. This was called Bond Strikes Camp and it seemed to suggest that most British spies were secretly gay.

31. In the early 1960s, Ian would spend evenings with John blackwell.

Blackwell was a bachelor school teacher who had a house in the grounds of Wellesley House school at Broadstairs in Kent. The school takes boys up to the age of thirteen.

On Sunday afternoons Ian and Blackwell would take some pupils from the school on a car outing to a local golf course. Ian would give the boys Bond memorabilia. (Lycett)

32. Hugh Gaitskell died rather mysteriously in 1963.

33. Ian Fleming died in 1964.

34. His son Caspar died in 1975.
