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.
I don't have easy access to the National Archives and so the information on these pages comes from a wide range of sources, although as you can see, there are still many details missing - contributions from readers will be appreciated.

Escaper here means escaping from the Germans - some men were still interned by the French in the ZNO
It may be assumed that airmen with FTR (failed to return) dates evaded in or from France, Belgium or Holland unless otherwise noted
Miranda refers to the Spanish concentration camp at Miranda-del-Ebro where so many men were held for varying amounts of time
Chambaran refers to escapes from the French prison near Grenoble where the ORs of Detachment W were sent in Sept 42, and the officers in Oct 42
Laghouat refers to the infamous French internment camp in Algeria - prisoners were only released after the Operation Torch landings in Nov 42
Fillerin refers the Fillerin family of Renty (Pas-de-Calais) who helped escapers and evaders throughout the war
Alhama de Aragon refers to the spa town about 100 kms south-west of Saragossa where some airmen internees were entertained by the Spanish Air Force
Note that after the Allied landings in North Africa, the Germans took over the former ZNO. Remaining Detachment W internees were sent to Italy
Note that the Comete escape line crossed the extreme western Pyrenees and generally delivered their 'parcels' safely to the British Consulate
The last man I have details for - F/Sgt Dreschler - left Gibraltar for the UK 21 Feb 1943

It may be assumed that airmen with FTR (failed to return) dates evaded in or from France, Belgium or Holland unless otherwise noted
Alhama de Aragon refers to the spa town about 100 kms south-west of Saragossa where some airmen internees were entertained by the Spanish Air Force
Mary Lindell was returned to France by Lysander in Oct 42 to organise the Marie-Claire escape line based at Ruffec
Oaktree refers to the escape line organised by Val Williams and Ray Labrosse, who were parachuted into France in Mar 43
Miranda refers to the Spanish concentration camp at Miranda-del-Ebro where so many men were held for varying amounts of time
Chambaran refers to escapes from the French prison near Grenoble where the ORs of Detachment W were sent in Sept 42, and the officers in Oct 42
Fillerin refers the Fillerin family of Renty (Pas-de-Calais) who helped escapers and evaders throughout the war
Note that after the Allied landings in North Africa, the Germans took over the former ZNO. Remaining Detachment W internees were sent to Italy
Note that despite the arrest of Pat O'Leary and so many other PAO agents in early 1943, escapes continued through Françoise Dissard in Toulouse
Note that the Comete escape line crossed the extreme western Pyrenees and generally delivered their 'parcels' safely to the British Consulate
The last man I have details for - Sgt Smith RCAF - returned to England from Sweden 13 May 1943
