A file of correspondence discussing the establishment of a Greek escape organisation, directed by British intelligence, with the aim of supplying troops and technicians to the Greek forces in the Middle East. Among the topics of discussion in this file are the inefficiency of the previous arrangements by the Greek government in exile; the need for a greater number of fighting men and technicians rather than officers; arrangements for MI9 to take over control without offending the Greeks; and the financing of the organisation from the special intelligence funds.
