These three telegrams were sent by a Belgium WT operator in Brussels. In them he added Tobs' messages for the Dutch (N) section which must have entirely confused London since Tobs was supposed to be in the Netherlands. However, Tobs had no means of communicating with HQ since his radio transmitter went missing after he and Jan Steman landed in Etten.

This telegram reveals that Tobs left for Paris again and is sending an identification card to London. Greetings to Eva.
WILLEM what about putting a map somewhere to show where he travelled until finally crossing into Spain?
