Biography

The operator was Douglas Ingrams, who had been commissioned into the Territorial Army in the 1920s. He seems to have been a quite exceptional operator, since he was to succeed the acting Intelligence Officer for the area, Captain ERR Fingland in 1943. This was no temporary cover arrangement, since Ingrams was formally returned to military service and later in the war was transferred to be Special Duties IO for Norfolk. He remained in the military after the war for some years, serving in the Middle East.
