Germaine BAJPAI
According to 'Jean-Jacque' (Albert Mattens) the leader of Comete guides: " ... Hautfoin" had the beauty of the devil". She ran with an 'elevated' social circle of friends and had connections with an aristocratic group of Gaulists. She was 52 years old, looked like she was in her 30s ... and all airmen who came in contact with her were struck by her stunning good looks and character. She had been married 4 times - once to an Aussy Sailor (a sea capt I think), and lastly to Mr Sarda Bajpai, the brother of the Indian Ambasador to the USA ... She was one of the three heads of the safe-house system created by 'Jerome' in Paris, ca Aug '43. She organized safe-houses, saw to their welfare, and guided airmen to and from in the city. She had helped 'officially' 63 Allied airmen by the time she was arrested on 18/01/44. (Though I think I have the number up to 75). Deported to Ravensbruck, she died there of maltreatment, on 4 Feb, 1945.

Gertrude MOORS
Died at Ravensbruck Concentration Camp 5/5/1945
Gertrude MOORS was party to helping a F/Lt Leonard PIPKIN RAF (COMET No. 63)escape in 1942. Born in Dilsen in 1902. She was arrested in 1943 having been an active person within the SIS and MARC and LUC which were intelligence gathering units reporting back to the Secret Intelligence Service. She gave direct and personal assistance to Pipkin prior to her arrest. I am told she was also an operational chief with L 100 Group ? The date of her detention was in fact the 18 June 1943 then being tortured in St Gilles Prison condemned to death on the 2 July 1944.
