SOE Operative Knut Egil Almquist - Searching for Information

Post  Henry on Sun 7 Jun 2009 - 21:41

Sirs, Ma'ams,

I am searching for information about a relative of mine, Knut Egil Almquist.

I believe Egil worked for the British Special Operations Executive during WWII.

It is this aspect I am very interested in, and am trying to find people or any information that may help in piecing together a bigger picture of both Egil and the people working in this tumultuous time.

I found a mention of Egil in the "M/B Trygve (M 29 V)" entry in: http://www.warsailors.com/shetlandbus/boatst.html

I thank you for your time and any advice anybody may be able to offer.

Henry,

Further to my call: The NA file is HO 405/215, but it appears it is closed for 100 years. Probably best to contact the NA and ask the reason why. Howard Davies is the main man and will advise you accordingly.

I checked my own SOE records, codes and alien numbers and he doesn't appear there. It could be he was British SIS (MI6) or possibly Norwegian XU organisation. The NA will be able to throw more light on that, hopefully. If he was SIS then the chances of finding out about him are slim at best, but I need to dig further to see if there is another way

If I find anything else I will let you know.

Bob
