Thanks for the heads up.
Reading the blurb I'm left wondering if there is any connection between what Paul's witness witnessed and what the SOE got up to in the lochs!!??

No Morag precedes SOE by many years, not as well known as her little sister in Loch Ness. Perhaps she thrived on spillages from the Heavy Water plant!
