Situation: Codename GOPHER an informant within Manchester was rescued, with his mistress during Operation APHID and gave some information that led to Operation: CRICKET. Part of the deal of GOPHER’s co-operation would be that ALFIES brings his infant child from BUF territory. Other priorities came to light and GOPHER has stopped co-operating with ALFIES. Fortunately the child Codename GORDON has been located and a mission put in place to reunite the family. GORDON’s wife committed suicide after his escape and the child was taken into care.
The Royal Children’s Society is a newly established charity which has been taking on waifs and strays and putting them into special homes. There reasons are twofold – to raise children as royalists and to prevent them being raised in the BUF children homes being set up.
To promote their proper upbringing the children are taken away from their home area. In the case of GORDON she has been moved to the South West where a home has been established in Clevedon Court, Somerset.
Christmas is coming and it is know the home authorities are looking for entertainers for the children’s party. A group of entertainers might easy access to the home which is inconveniently contained within the boundaries of a heavily guarded and patrolled POW camp.
