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.
