    Thanks for tat. I had forgotten the PAL entries, so as you say, they certainly existed back then. That also supports the 1942 timeline. But I have never seen an X or Y in tissue...

    All the best.

    Not Mi9 or Soe but equally as useful for Prisoners of War.

    One former prisoner at Stalag Luft III, Charles Huppert, told how prisoners became expert at turning tin cans into tools. Huppert said, "We used Klim tins for everything that we made, because you could cut the ends out, and have a large piece of tin to work with. You can straighten that out flat, and make a ... join them together in a locked joint, such as this, and take your wooden mallet and hammer them down. Then you take your backside of a knife and bear down on that, with a lot of pressure on both sides of that crimp, so that the tin will not separate, in order to make the tools that are used in the tunnels: the digging tools, the funnels, and the lamps to give light."
