By Mike Royden.
Please don't take any thing that's written here as accurate, as I have not checked all the details.
I have not been though my copy of the 26 Volumes of the Warren Report & Hearings.
I have also mislaid my copy of the Meagher Index and my HSCA vols.
The listing has been put together to give ideas for further investigation.
Please write if you notice any omissions, errors or new lines of inquiry.
Part of this was reprinted in the issue of Dallas 63, Vol 1, No.3. August, 1994.
What I have tried to do is list briefly, without going into too much detail, as many British connection's that I can think of, with the intention of getting others to investigate further. This is a sketchy guide and it needs filling out with dates, names, address, list's of newspaper articles and books written and CIA/FBI documents. And my notes may need to be put into some order. As well as finding what has already been written. The field is open for new discoveries and developments.
1.Lee Harvey Oswald arrives at Southampton, Friday 9th October 1959. He takes a private flight the next day from London Heathrow to Helsinki, Finland.Private flight? Heathrow? Who did he meet here? What type of flight did he take to get to Helsinki? Anything in Public Record Office or recently US declassified files?

The passengers lists, Shipping/Aircraft could be checked out for Oswald's name. It's uncertain if this has been
done or if this material still exists. It's also not certain who or if he met anyone here. I would like to think he did
meet up with a handler, but I am only guessing. Why pass through London Airport? Was this the only way it
could be done.
Chris Mills gave a talk on the Oswald trip at a recent Dallas 63 meeting in Liverpool. And looked into the trails
left by Oswald.

2. In November ?1963, Albert Osborne?/John Howard Bowen? stayed with his sister in Grimsby and visited his brother at home for the elderly, after three days he left, just before the assassination. "On Nov 22 from a town short distance from Grimsby a mysterious call to a Cambridge newspaper, 25 minutes before the President was shot. The caller said that the reporter should call the American Embassy in London for some big news and then rang off." Is the cable correct? Anything to it? Who investigated it? What other research has Eddowes got? Can the phone call be connected to Osborne?

"Angleton was also involved with the investigation of the curious phone call to the Cambridge News. See
Unsolved No. 17, 1984, Chapman Pincher [alleged MI6 asset?]p. 346. About 25 minutes before Kennedy was shot an anonymous caller told the newspaper that if it contacted the American Embassy in London it would get some 'big news'. When the information about the call eventually reached CIA headquarters in the States Angleton dealt
with it and sent a memo on it to Hoover. It seemed to implicate the Soviet Embassy. Michael Eddowes has
taken this up but another investigator could find little conformation for the story and the staff at the paper knew
nothing about it." Stephen Dorril. "Lee Harvey Oswald in Mexico: New leads." pp.16. footnote 19. Lobster. No. 6.

3.Dr. John Bryan McFarland and his wife Meryl McFarland on coach trip to Mexico City with Lee Harvey Oswald
Warren Commission testimony? The McFarland's lived in Liverpool. Dr. McFarland is a surgeon and has written a number of text books on surgery. He currently lives abroad, his wife lives in Liverpool. They have been plagued for years with phone calls from investigators, TV programme makers etc. I understand they are not interested in talking about it.
4. "British Who Killed Kennedy Committee" What did they do? The Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation in Nottingham, said "The British 'Who Killed Kennedy?' Committee was wound up many years ago, but it did succeed in keeping open the question of the Kennedy assassination and helped to find Mark Lane a publisher, whereas he had been completely ignored previously." CIA may have infiltrated Ralph Schoenman into group? Was he already Russell's secretary. Anyone want to interview the remaining members. John Arden, Carolyn Wedgwood Benn, Michael Foot, Hugh Trevor-Roper & Ralph Schoenman still living. Others presumed dead.
Letter Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation from Ken Fleet. 22 March 1979. Mark Lane's book Rush To Judgment was published by the Bodley Head in 1966 and later became a best-seller Penguin paperback.

Prof. Hugh Trevor-Roper [Lord Dacre] Born 1914. Regius Professor of Modern History. During the war held a commission in Military Intelligence.[British Intelligence] Did he work for MI5 or more likely MI6? Was he a spook? or just an academic drafted in for the duration of the war. How does his Intelligence report on the death of Hitler compare to the published book. Last Days of Hitler.
What are we to make of the reports of new information out of Russian archives that Hitler escaped death in the bunker? Professor Norman Stone was reportedly writing a new book. Hitler:The Final Report. HarperCollins. However as at October 1995 the publication had been deferred and neither the UK or USA editions had appeared. Another new book by Hugh Thomas The Dopplegangers.4th Estate. was published on schedule and again as at October 1995, only a few months later, has already been remaindered and spotted in Manchester at £4.99! A slight air of mystery surrounds the third, and possibly best, account, by Ada Petrova & Peter Watson, The Death of Hitler. This book was the first issued by a new publishing company Richard Cohen Books, London. It only remained in the shops for a few months over the V.E. Day period, but it appears to have vanished without trace. It included much information and many photographs from Russia's secret archives. And now comes news of Martin Bormann.

As Warren Report Critic wrote an Introduction to Rush to Judgment. An earlier draft was also published as a reprint and wrote:

It's likely that the CIA and maybe the FBI, took a greater interest in him, then other critics because he was part of the British establishment, and he had maintained a close relationship with Harold Macmillan, the recently retired Conservative Prime Minster, and Sir Dick White , head of MI6. He was harder for them to deal with. Many suspected CIA assets took part in trying to discredit him. It's reported, but not confirmed that Robert Kennedy went so far as to thank Trevor Roper for writing about the case.
I need to check out Tom Bowers book on Dick White. I think it contains a group photo that includes White and Trevor-Roper.
Possibly ruined reputation by authenticating fake Hitler Diaries for Sunday Times newspapers. Is an Historian of the Elizabeth period?

Re Boss files. Now that Nelson Mandela is South African President, it will be interesting to see if these files will be released. My guess is that once Mandela came to power, BOSS shredded all the incriminating documents. Still it might be worth a try.

52. While looking through the March 1967 issue of Oz No.2 (the only copy of Oz I have), Beside an article by Mark Lane on the BBC Rush to Judgment programme. It also publishes a letter, that I reprint in full:
February 9 
It's a pleasure to have your support. Remind me one day to tell you about Private Eye and the assassination. Not that they were involved in planning it, but they played an interesting role in joining with the establishment to lead the attack upon critics of the Warren Commission.
They apologised ( [John] Wells did) and a year later agreed to run a favourable article or interview. They never did. Wells apologised again and said that Bernard Levin was very close to the publication and he was in love with the Report, PE [Private Eye] could do nothing.
Good luck with Oz. I am framing the drawing of LBJ.
Private Eye didn't take kindly to the launch of the new publication OZ. And Lane might have used this to get on friendly terms with Neville. Richard Ingrams said "Oz is gratifyingly bad..." "Peter Cook...stood in a Soho bar, lit a match and sent Oz up in flames." Richard Neville. Hippie Hippie Shake: The dreams, the trips, the trials, the love in's, the screw ups, the sixties. Bloomsbury. 1995. p.77.
Looking at the covers of Oz covering the end-papers of Neville's book, Oz one has an article about "The Death of a President." Has anyone got a copy?
" Mark Lane, the American lawyer, came to London to promote his book Rush to Judgement, which rejected the findings of the Warren Commission into the assassination of President Kennedy. The BBC presented a live five-hour special on the assassination, supposedly to test the arguments put forward by Lane and to allow replies by the Commision's lawyers. To my amazement - and that of the viewers who jammed the switchboards - the BBC not only sided with the Commission, but prevented Lane from presenting his case. It was as though, at the last minute, the BBC had been subjected to an edict from the Foreign Office. Mark Lane had enjoyed our first issue ('I've framed the portrait of LBJ'), and had sent us a wad of copy which detailed the behind-the-scenes mechanics off BBC censorship." Neville. pp.77-78.
I have been though the the sixties issues of Private Eye, available on microfilm, and I found very, very few references to the assassination, maybe half a dozen at the most. Nothing exciting. Considering Private Eye's alleged investigative power, publish and be dammed! and it's claim to be an anti establishment, it struck me as surprising how tame many of the sixties issues were. Perhaps the best thing in it was Paul Foot's contributions.
I would love to see a run of Oz. Martin Sharp's brilliant illustrations set the tone of the time. They are available on microfilm, but I have not seen them. On CD ROM? Or housed in special collections? I would like to know. Do they contain any other assassination material.
I also look at the collection of alternative magazines on microfilm issed by Havester press. I also have a bibliography of Alternative magazines [Title not known at this time] published by Havester Press. See also: Nigel Fountain. Underground: The London Alternative Press 1966-74. Very disappointing, a couple of items about Bilderburg, An advert for a German book on the assassination available from the author ?? Who I wrote to, and: Matusow, Harvey. "J. Edgar Hoover - Kennedy's Assassin?" Friends.(Frendz)? 1 January, 1971. p.1, 4 & 6. Illus. This is the first mention outside of Joesten's writings suggesting Hoover may have be involved. Remember Hoover was still living. Matusow was an FBI informant and stooge during the Senator McCathy/Hoover inspired HUAC hearings.
Bernard Levin [Is he a CIA media asset?] appeared on the BBC 23rd November 1963 Kennedy tribute "That was the week that was" programme. The soundtrack was issued on an LP. I can't remember exactly what he said. He appears to have various links to the right and has used his regular Times column for a succession of cranky right views over the years. it would be worthwhile for someone to check out his background and journalism. I would guess it's already been done. I didn't know he had links to Private Eye.
What I guess is a sanitised version of Levin's relations with Private Eye appears in Patrick Marnham The Private Eye Story: The first 21 years. Fontana paperback. 1983. p.200.
Levin, Bernard. The Pendulum Years. paperback. pp.40-42. Calls the people opposed to the findings of the Warren Report, an Assassination Industry. Which it wasn't.
Still going strong, churning out rubbish as late as 1988.
"we would not be bracing ourselves for yet another deluge of rubbish demonstrating after he was killed not by Lee Harvey Oswald but in a conspiracy organized by the Mersey Docks and Habour Board under the direction of the Pope. There are many reasons why I wish he had not died that day in Dallas, all of them much more important, but the products of the 'Who killed Kennedy?' industry constitutes one of the most depressing."

For example, when in 1964 former British Intelligence man Trevor Roper had the temerity to attack the Warren Commission Report in the Sunday Times, commission member Allen Dulles turned for advice on what to do to former CIA and OSS man Frank Wisner. Wisner in turn contracted ex-OSS man and former Kennedy adviser Arthur Schlesinger, who recommended that since Bernard Levin had just published a piece attacking Trevor Roper, it would therefore not be necessary for Schlesinger himself to produce a rebuttal.But it is difficult to imagine that any other American WW2 agency created a system of intimate contact between people as diverse as Schlesinger, Wisner and Dulles that was capable of such rapid and smooth communication twenty years after the end of the war."

Subject: Lewis Lapham -Reply
Lewis Lapham was General Counsel for CIA for a number of years -- same guy as Harper's editor. However, keep in mind that Lapham has never been "covert" in the sense that his background was known before he went to work for Harper's. If you read his essays, he's no friend of the Cold Warrior mentality and got disgusted with the whole thing.
More interesting, perhaps, is another Lapham, Aaron, who (as best I can tell but never got absolute confirmation is Lewis's brother) figures in a whole bunch of stuff. He's mentioned in Secret Agenda and he's the author of "Orchids for Mother", a "novel" about James Jesus Angleton that probably tells more about Watergate than any book published to date. I'll try to write up some of that info if anyone is interested.
" Tom Bethell was in charge of Garrison's files. Just as the case
was coming to trial, he stole the trial brief and supporting
documentation from Garrison and passed it over to the defense. Then, he
had the gall to continue working in Garrison's office! Lou Ivon finally
determined it was Bethell, who confessed, and then left the office."
"In Jim Brown's unpublished book on the Garrison case, it was interesting
to see that Bethell was one of the least enthusiastic people in
Garrison's office. Add to that that Bethell used to sit around and argue
in defense of the Warren Commission and you wonder why no one had the
suspicion he was less than interested in helping out. But in those days,
no one understood what they were up against, and how such infiltration
was done. Hey, he kept a good system for maintaining the files, he MUST
be a good guy, right? Oh boy."

Was JFK Assassination A Secret U.S. Coup d'Etat?
CAPTION: Nigel Turner, producer of "The Men Who Killed
(NUI) - An award-winning British film director, who believes
that the 1963 assassination of John F.
Kennedy was in essence a still-secret American coup d'etat, is
presenting exclusive new filmed evidence on
the events of Nov. 22, 1963, for Americans who watch The
Nigel Turner has filmed witnesses and technical experts whose
testimony, he says, makes "it almost
certain that Kennedy was killed when the Kennedy brothers' own
plot to assassinate Fidel Castro was
infiltrated by rogue CIA agents who, along with Mafia bosses
and angry Cuban exiles, turned the plot
against the Kennedys themselves."
Turner's film "The Men Who Killed Kennedy: The Truth Shall Make
You Free," is the sixth installment in
a series that debuted in his native country. The first five
episodes of the series aired on A&E Network in
1991, then were distributed worldwide.
Among Turner's revelations:
Current film technology that looks at the Zapruder film and
other photographic evidence of the Kennedy
assassination and proves conclusively that, contrary to federal
government findings, the bullet that killed
the president entered his right temple from the front and blew
a large hole in the back of his head. This
means that Lee Harvey Oswald, who was behind the motorcade,
could not have killed Kennedy.
The autopsy photographs in the National Archives have been
doctored to advance the
Testimony by a former staff member of the House Select
Committee on Assassinations that their
investigations were blocked at every turn by the FBI and the

a military assassin at Fort Bragg, turned
down a request by a CIA official that he murder Lt. Cmdr.

unit at Bethesda Hospital, Md., who had photographs that showed
the true nature of Kennedy's fatal head
"The British and other people around the world care about who
killed Kennedy because we all are
concerned that the greatest democracy may be crumbling without
the American people being aware of it,"
Turner says. "Can you kill a sitting U.S. president and get
away with it? Apparently, yes, you can."

THE TRUTH WILL MAKE YOU FREE
46 MIN, A & E, 1995, by Nigel Turner
Video 6 of The Men Who Killed Kennedy Series
$19.95 from 1-800-708-1776
The former mayor of Beverly Hills, Bob Tannenbaum, tells the viewers on
this video that he resigned as a member of the House Assassinations Committee
because "they really didn't want to find out the truth publicly." He states
that the CIA and intelligence agencies obstructed their requests for evidence
and that the committee itself did not want to subpoena anyone or conduct a
thorough investigation. They would not call witnesses who had views contrary
to the committee's.
Tom Wilson, for 30 years a top consultant for U.S. Steel for discovering
product defects through computer enhanced photography, shows his state-of
-the art computerized analysis of the photos of the wounds to JFK's head.
Using over 6000 pieces of mathematical information, he constructed a large
model of the projectile of the right temple wound which prove that the bullet
came from below upwards, from inside the manhole cover at the bottom of the
steps in Dealey Plaza and not from "badge man."
The autopsy photos released by the government are proven to show that
morticians' wax had filled in the right temple entrance wound and that photo
retouching had masked and disguised the rear head exit wound.
Lt. Col. Dan Marvin, a paratrooper and member of the elite Green Beret
forces, tells the viewers that he took specialist CIA Guerrilla training in
assassination and terrorism at Fort Bragg just weeks after the JFK
To the viewers horror, it is learned that as part of his CIA training,
there Lt. Col. Dan Marvin was shown how to assassinate foreign heads of state
using the example of the JFK murder, which was cited as a classic
assassination. Included in the teaching were films and still photos of Dealey
Plaza plus a mock up of the Plaza showing where the shooters were standing
and the routes to the hospital.
Marvin heard the CIA assassination instructor say to his fellow instructor
at a coffee break "Things really did go well in Dealey Plaza, didn't it?"
Marvin and his buddy felt that this man was himself involved in the
assassination from the way he talked.
Fifteen months later, in August 1965, a CIA official approached Dan at Fort
Bragg and asked him to volunteer to murder a U. S. Naval officer, Comdr.
William Bruce Pitzer, head of the audio/visual unit at Bethesda Naval
Hospital. The assassination needed to be done soon, before the man retired,
it was explained. Dan, after first agreeing to assassinate the officer, said
he would not do so as it went against regulations which [listen to this one
,folks] require that the Mafia be used for domestic assassinations! He was
trained that his unit was only to be used for overseas assassinations.
[Cut to Dennis David, Petty Officer at Bethesda during this period.]
David states that he was a friend of Admiral Pitzer and visited him in his
office at Bethesda where he saw him viewing 16 MM films of the JFK autopsy
conducted there. The film and slides seen by him then showed only a tiny
bullet wound to the right front temple of the President, and a large, gaping
exit wound at the rear of the head.
Admiral Pitzer was found dead in his Bethesda studio shot in the right
temple, though his bridge partners say he was left handed. Pitzer had told
Dennis David that he had some lucrative TV offers for the right to show the
films and photos of the JFK autopsy, and that after his retirement he
intended to check them out. David believes that the airing of the films would
have humiliated many important people and that he was assassinated to prevent it.
New Views on the Kennedy's Vendetta against Castro
Bill Turner, former FBI employee, makes the case that the Kennedys had a
secret agenda to destroy Fidel Castro which they kept secret from all but
the rare few on a need to know basis. JFK took the anti-Castro operations
away from the CIA and ran them out of the White House. RFK was masterminding
a second invasion of Cuba and was determined not to repeat the Bay of Pigs
It was reported to Mr. Turner that the invasion plans were based out of a
Dominican Republic city, Monte Cristi. These plans were in violation of the
October 1962 missile crisis agreement with Khrushchev not to invade Cuba and
if the press learned of them it would have been a disaster.
Lamar Walden and Tom Hartman have accumulated documents recently obtained
under the FOIA which show that high on the agenda in the summer and fall of
1963 was getting more low level intelligence agents into Cuba legally, for
the purposes of assessing whether the Cuban people would back a new leader
and an invasion.
Many people visited the Cuban embassy in Mexico City under this general
effort to try to get into Cuba in order to talk to the man on the street and
report back to the invasion planners.
It is believed by Walden and Hartman that Oswald was convinced that he had
to establish credentials to get into Cuba and gather intelligence by posing
as a member of the Fair Play for Cuba Committee, handing out leaflets, etc.
The Mad Dog Bites its Owner
This video suggests that the CIA, Mafia and exile Cubans who were plotting
Castro's murder turned on President Kennedy in anger over tactical and
political disputes and killed him. Then an already planned cover-up apparatus
kicked in and was used to protect Kennedy's killers.
There is little in this video that traces the identity of who murdered
President Kennedy, but new light is shed on the nature of the cover-up and
why it was so immediately operative.
In September of 1963 there were elaborate contingency plans for taking
action should Castro discover the planned second invasion and retaliate.
Robert Kennedy personally, according to the FOIA documents obtained, had
his advisers put together plans for a total cover-up, including a media
cover-up, if his second invasion of Cuba were discovered. The response plans
involved co-ordination with the State Department, the FBI, CIA, the Defense
Department, Alexander Haig, Mr. Califano and others.
A set of information control plans were intended to keep the fact of the
planned invasion from the press, as the matter would be used by the
Republican to defeat President Kennedy in the upcoming election year.
It was even learned that right after the murder, Bobby Kennedy made contact
with the autopsy people in Bethesda to insure that improper sources did not
learn all the facts and he even directed some autopsy events, according to an
It is surmised by Walden and Hartman that Bobby recognized Oswald as part
of the Cuban invasion operation and he was frightened that if the public
learned of Oswald's role in it it would be an embarrassment to him.
Alexander Haig, one of the principle authors of the contingency plans for
disinformation and cover-up, immediately took custody of JFK's body after the
Robert Kennedy may have felt guilt and personal responsibility for his
brother's death, the investigators say.
This video might make some say that Kennedy had it coming if he was lying to
the public and the press, himself, and was plotting illegal murders of
foreign heads of state. His Murder Inc. got angry at him, like a mad dog, and
killed its owner.
A touching statement by Marina Oswald appears near the end which I quote in
"People that you trust betrayed you. The government that you trust betrayed
, the officials that you trust - they told you blind lies and they knew it.
So, that kind of betrayal will turn your soul upside down.
"For that I am angry. For all the Blakey's, the Fords and God only knows
whom, the Posners and Mailers who had the opportunity to improve something
and they refused or sold out or were weak enough - or whatever.
"But when that hope is taken away and you reduce the human being to the
level of the animal, like me, even the animal can feel.
"So you expect me not to protest? Sure I do.
"So this is - that is - the reason that I am here. Because nobody has the
right to play God over somebody else=92s life and not just get away with it,
but be happy with this kind of power. This is just simply insanity."
61. "The Warren Commission's report, released in September 1964, was acclaimed by a relieved American public, but in Europe skepticism resounded from the first readings. Allen [Dulles] used his annual late summer vacation to try convincing friends from his own era that they should not pursue a search for conspiracy behind the acts of a sole crazed gunman. Over civilized dinners with the likes of Dame Rebecca West and the chiefs of British Intelligence, he encounted unending resistance. "I offered them roast beef, but they preferred souffle." Only among the opinion leaders of Switzerland did he seem to make headway. He reported to [J. Lee] Rankin and the [Warren] Commission staff on his return that "the editor of the leading Swiss paper, Neurer Zuericher Zeitung, told me that the report had changed the earlier skeptical attitude of his paper."." Peter Grose. Gentleman Spy. p559. Not footnoted.
Rebecca West wrote a book on wartime British traitors, The Meaning of Treason. [March]1965. Penguin paperback. Any idea what a "civilized dinner" is?
So the "chiefs of British Intelligence" weren't taken by Dulles's deception's, well at least that's something in their favour. But the Swiss were. I remember reading in New Times [Soviet Union] that the Americans tried to lock up Joachim Joesten in a mental hospital in Switzerland. Is Peter Grose a spook? Labour MP Bob Edwards and ? published a pamphlet in 1962 on Dulles that was attacked in Nicholas Mosley's biography. I don't have my copy of it to hand to check against Grose. I think Bob Edwards died a few years ago.

"A monumental achievement, one of the greatest pieces of detective work ever accomplished..." Robin Ramsay. Lobster issue 2, p.3. Having praised Lifton, Ramsay then goes on to say..."..?..". This is an impressive work that tells Lifton's story of how he found and developed new evidence in the case. His recalls his friendship with Warren Commission lawyer Wesley J. Liebler and his tape recorded phone interviews with many of the key Bethesda autopsy participants is particularly riveting and illuminating. It changed the who perception of the assassination for me. The court room solid evidence,he has should have and my yet one day may lead to the reopening of the case. Lifton mentions in the book of bringing out another work on the plot itself. So far this has failed to appear. He has reportedly been working for the last fifteen years on the definitive work on Lee Harvey Oswald. It's still to appear.
Mailer, Norman. Oswald's Tale: An American Mystery. Little Brown. 1995. 791pp. £25.00. Trashy work that states Oswald did it. Could be possibly Mailer's worst book. Martin Amis reviewed it as "Fatally Flawed." Sunday Times September,1995. according to that week's copy of the magazine Private Eye, Amis was paid £36,000 to write six book reviews for the Sunday Times and this was the first article @ £6,000 a review. He earned more from that review then I earned in a whole year selling secondhand books. No justice in the world! Amis here was paid to be used as a brand name by the Sunday Times. Reviewed by John Newman. "Ghost with a gun." T.L.S. 20th October, 1995. p.8. Newman reflects on the fact that Mailer's chief researcher was Lawrence Schiller, a well known anti- conspiracy buff and author of the scurrilous work The Scavengers and Critics of the Warren Report. Schiller also worked on the O.J. Simpson defence team. He should be ashamed of himself! And of Mailer's oversite at not looking into the numerous newly released documents under the JFK Act.? A common oversite when were dealing with authors, the likes of Mailer and Posner.
Manchester, William. The Death of A President Michael Joseph. 1966?? Possibly the most common of all the books on the Assassination. Serialised in The Sunday Times including extracts left out of book [About LBJ] Reportedly the author nearly had a nervous breakdown writing it. Possibly the most widely published of all the books on this subject, you can even get it as a talking book for the blind.I think it runs to about 18 hours. Replete with errors, David Lifton is the only critic I have read, that recommends this book. The press went into overdrive for praise, extolling it to the sky. How's this for hype. [taken from the dust jacket, of course] "A book of the decade, a giant in every way." from the Liverpool Daily Post. Just how more wrong could they be. The Kennedy family that commissioned the book, then tried to stop it being published See: Item ?? Lawrence Van Gelder. The Untold Story Why the Kennedy's lost the book battle. It's possible that the extracts about LBJ ommitted from the published book may have appeared in proof copies, but I yet to see any proof copies and don't if they were issued.

Avoid books like the plague with titles like "complete". Warlords of Crime: Chinese Secret Societies - The New Mafia. Which resulted in a expensive libel action for the publisher.The Bio-Assassins.Hitler's Children. Another typical mis-titled book. The title gives the impression of Hitler youth far right groups, but is in fact an attack on far left terrorist groups. Rosa Luxenburg's Grandchildren would be a better title. It's now thought that many of these groups were bogus, entirely made up and fund by West German intelligence.
Posner, Gerald. Case Closed: Lee Harvey Oswald And The Assassination Of JFK. Warner Books. 1994. 607pp. Illus. Index. Footnotes. paperback.

Copeland, Miles. The Real Spy World. Sphere paperback 1978. Miles Copeland CIA agent, was father and manager [I think ?]of Stewart Copeland drummer with the pop group "The Police" The only other manager that was connected to the Intelligence services was Mike Jeffrey's an accountant and manager of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and the Animals. Who was reported working for MI5. But what work he did I don't know? Maybe he really did their accounts. Chas Chandler Hendrix's original manager and discover of, said Jeffrey's and Hendrix were "Acid Buddies" . Jeffrey's died in a plane crash, sabotage is not suspected. But many still think he was murdered by the US Mafia. Hendrix had sacked Jeffrey via a transatlantic phonecall just the evening before he himself had died. And many people suspect Jeffrey's involvement in Hendrix's death. He ripped off the performers he managed (a common occurrence at the time, the first manager to actually help performers was the late Peter Grant, manager of Led Zeppelin ) and left the business in a legal accounting mess, Hendrix finances were tied up in various dubious off-shore shell companies. The legal and financial mess has still not been sorted out to this day. Miles Copeland who spoke TEN languages, also tipped off Arthur Scargill that he was being set up by M15 & the CIA. Which he was with the MI5 Roger Windsor/Libya story. Seumas Milne. The Enemy Within: MI5, Maxwell and the Scargill Affair. Verso. 1994. pp.1-2. Having seen a video documentry of Sting, I now think I am talking about two different Miles Copeland's.

Written and published by Robin Ramsay [Hull] and Stephen Dorril. [Huddersfield, now of Holmfirth]. Lobster magazine is an interesting and provocative collection of articles and news items on the British State. It has also championed the cause of Colin Wallace and Fred Holroyd.

Robin Ramsay has written articles for 'Tribune' and various magazines. He has also appeared on the Channel Four night time discussion programme "After Dark" and the Cable channel Wire. Paul Foot writes about him as "a journalist who prefers investigations in the sub world of intelligence to making the good living which his talent could provide." Who Framed Colin Wallace? p. xi.
Stephen Dorril has appeared on the BBC programme "the net" standing outside the new MI5 building, and has written with Anthony Summers Honeytrap [about the Profumo affair] which was made into the film 'Scandal' and The Silent Conspiracy: Inside the Intelligence Services in the 1990's. He is currently working on a book about the British Intelligence Services.
Issue One was first published in September 1983. It ran until issue 24 after that issue the two writers split up, and starting with issue 26 produced two Lobsters. See "A tale of two Lobsters" The Independent and Saturday Guardian article for general feature on Lobster. Can anyone give me a short concise summary of the reasons for the split, to be included here.

Vol 1 Issue 1. 18th October, 1968 - Vol 1. issue 4. 28th January, 1969. Ran to 4 issues. Anyone have any more information? Dawnay comes across as a bit paranoid, but he seems to be well justified in his paranoia.It's more then likely that British and American Intelligence took an interest in Dawnay.
Vol 1 Issue 1. 18 October, 1968. Editorial. [Mentions that 60 CIA agents operate out of a bogus commercial company with offices at 7 Cleveland Row, just by St. James Palace. London.

Undercover magazine only ran to 5 issues, although apparently No. 6 was in preparation and the articles for that issues were to be used for another magazine. Editor was Brian M. Clarke. Assistant Editor was Glenn B. Fleming, who also contributed artwork to some issues of JFK Assassination Forum. Most issues carried something about the Kennedy Assassination and the magazine was a downmarket,junior version of Lobster. A beginners guide to parapolitics. Not too heavy on the text and lots of pictures.

Undercover No. 6, August 1993, was advertised on the rear cover of issue 5. "Among articles promised were, "Truth on Gibraltar", "The Bilderburg Group" and Part Two "Oswald in Mexico". IT NEVER APPEARED, obviously the "curse of Bilderburg" again! Remember Verdict! which published an article on this group in the 1970's and then disappeared forever..." writes Harry Irwin. My guess is that they just ran out of money.

1. Guth Delloyd J. & Wrone, David R. The Assassination of John F. Kennedy: A comprehensive historical and legal bibliography, 1963-1979. Greenwood Press. USA. 442pp.1980. Put in E.Mail Address. I have lost my copy, I have not seen it for about ten years.
This is the largest and most voluminous of all the bibliographies and is regarded as the standard work on the subject. A considerable amount of work has gone into it. But it's a flawed work, which badly needs updating. Unfortunately it is not annotated, which is a major inconvenience, and the one shortcoming of this bibliography, as it can be difficult to sort out the good stuff from the considerable junk around. Also there is no way for getting a feel of the subject. e.g. The considerable difficulty some authors had of getting into print. Or the situation of publishers at the time. Now that we know the effort the FBI had in stopping all but the most vacuous works from being published. And the attacks in the press by the CIA's various media assets. It includes a New York Times listing, which was probably also available at the time in the New York Times Index and also probably available on-line. Used probably because of the Times wide availability on microfilm. It excluded listings of the Dallas and New Orleans newspapers. So you could not study the unfolding events as they happened in Dallas or the New Orleans reporting of the Jim Garrison case. Various assassination newsletters are also not listed. The Library of Congress subject catalogue also contains a Kennedy Assassination listing.
