    The signature doesn't appear to be done with a fountain pen to me, that's for sure. In which case it must have been one of the earliest examples of the everyday usage of the ballpoint pen as Hafele was killed in 1942, less than 12 months after the 'Biro' was patented.

    It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.
    Last Entry - For God's sake look after our people.'
