Encryption during W.W.2 was mostly manual. morse code broadcasts did not end until the "Tons" went out of business.

I think you will find that the civilian with the briefcase is a representative of the
Geneva Protocal, since Neutral Rescue Craft are overseen by The Swiss Govt in wartime.

Interesting thread, I seem to recall watching an old British film may have been filmed just after the war with one of these in it. I think there was a downed German Pilot/crew taking refuge. Anyone else remember it.
would love a chance to go on a WW2 MTB if anyone has one. would gladly supply the Rum Ration
