CQMS HARRY HAINSWORTH'S SERVICE WITH THE IRREGULAR WIRELESS OPERATOR SECTION (SOE) IN YUGOSLAVIA, 1942-1944.
Forged identification card issued to Harry Hainsworth on the orders of Captain Rakovic in 1943. Although Hainsworth could speak Serbian pretty well his Scots accent came through. The cover story was invented that he was originally from the town of Maribor in Slovenia near the border with Austria. This, it was hoped, would account for his accent. Hainsworth's cover name was Joka Pavlovic. However, as Hainsworth writes in his memoir: 'It was perhaps just as well I was never called upon to use it'. (pg.107)
This unpleasant-looking character is called the Squander Bug, and it was created during the Second World War by artist Phillip Boydell, an employee of the National Savings Committee. The cartoon bug appeared in press adverts and poster campaigns as a menace who encouraged shoppers to waste money rather than buy war savings certificates.
