Het is niet duidelijk wanneer dit bericht verzonden is, 5 oktober, of 5 november. In ieder geval na Market Garden en het mogelijk verraad daarvan door KING KONG (Chris Lindemans). Men stelt dat Lindemans geen contact heeft gehad met verzetsgroepen die vanuit Eindhoven aangestuurd worden.Men klaagt over het voortdurend wijzigen of afzeggen van droppingsvelden, maar men denkt dat het beter zal gaan omdat de Gestapo en de SD zich sinds Market Garden meer naar het Oosten terugtrekt. SOE maakt ook gebruik van informatie van SIS omtrend dropping operaties, maar informatie uit Eindhoven is ook welkom. De groep CRICKET zijn Celosse, Cnoops, Sanders en Seyben.

Een bericht van Watermark (Special Forces HQ in Londen) aan Uppermost, dit is waarschijnlijk het hoofdkwartier van de Nederlandse sectie van SOE op het continent, mogelijk in Eindhoven, of Breda. Northaw (Prins Bernhard) ontvangt dit telegram ter informatie evenals Varicose en Validate. Wie deze laatsten zijn weet ik nog niet.
Op de een of andere manier zit de schrik er bij SOE goed in, alle operaties worden op een laag pitje gezet, dropping operaties in de gebieden van Sculling en Draughts zijn tijdelijk stop gezet en iedereen in het verzet moet zich rustig houden. Zelf het radioverkeer wordt tot een absoluut minimum teruggebracht.
Ook dit bericht is op 24 november 1944 verzonden.
