Tweede missie van Tobias Biallosterski uitgevoerd samen met de marconisten Pieter de Vos en Paul Polak.
Zondag 14 januari, Tobias (410) geeft aan dat de velden LALOE en MARTINI klaar zijn om een lading te ontvangen. Hij refereert hier naar bericht 274 van Londen. De rookbommen om Arbeitsensatz razzia te verstoren moeten op veld LALOE gedropt worden. Waarom het urgent is om een S-Phone tijdens deze dropping te gebruiken is niet duidelijk, misschien kan men met een S-Phone het vliegtuig beter naar het veld toe "praten".

De medische voorraden in het bezette deel van Nederland dreigen uitgeput te raken en men vraagt (
411) Londen om bepaalde medische stoffen te droppen anders dreigt er een catastrophe.

Paul Polak (
43) informeert Londen dat het Home Station elke 20 minuten zijn frequentie moet wijzigen in verband met verhoogde activiteiten van Duitse peilstations. Verder is kristal nr 5 van Pieter gebroken en hij heeft zo snel mogelijk een nieuw kristal nodig. De windgeneratoren, de fietsbanden en het geld waar Tobias om gevraagd heeft moet zo spoedig mogelijk gedropt worden, men zit er om te springen. Men is erg afhankelijk van het voedsel wat gedropt wordt en dankzij de sigaretten blijft de stemming binnen de DRAUGHTS groep goed.

Londen (
277) laat weten dat de velden HUDSON en LANCASTER goedgekeurd zijn en vraagt of er al gedropt kan worden Op maandag 15 januari wil men een lading van 24 containers en 4 pakketten droppen op veld MARTINI. Men geeft de nummers van de pakketten op en wat de inhoud is. Aan de levering van 80 zaklantaarns wordt gewerkt.

Tobias answers (410) London's question from message 274 and informs London that the fields LALOE and MARTINI are ready to receive loads. He asks London to drop the smoke bombs on field LALOE and also 80 torches on both LALOE and MARTINI. Tobias advises strongly that the planes should use their S-Phones. He also wants a list of material that will be dropped if necessary during the daytime skeds of his WT operators.

Tobias informs London (411) that the stock of medical supplies runs dangerously low which might turn out into a catastrophe for the Dutch people in the occupied zones. For the next few months he urgently asks for:
50 million units of insulin.
250 powder units of phenylethyl barbituric acid
25 kg of morphemic hydrochlorium

Paul Polak (43) advise London that the homestation in England should change their frequency during a sked every 20 minutes, due to increased activity of the German Direction Finding units. Douwe's (Paul Polak's) crystal number 5 has broken and London must drop a new one with the next plane that will drop a load in North-Holland. The windcharger, the continental bike tyres and the money Hans (Tobias) requested are urgently needed. London must send them soon. Team draughts depends greatly on the food dropped for them by the RAF and the cigarettes they drop too keep the spirits high.

London informs Tobias (277) that the new dropping fields HUDSON and LANCASTER have been approved. Are these fields ready to receive loads? The RAF will try to drop a load on MARTINI as from Monday January 15th with a full load of containers and 4 special packages. They are numbered 2112 and it contains WT sets for Douwe (Paul Polak) and number 3439 which contains special material for Tobias and the other one number 3445 will contain bike tyres for Tobias and Pieter Dekker (Cor van Paaschen) and also an Eureka beacon. The requested torches are being prepared.




Maandag 15 januari, Tobias (412) meldt dat JOSEPHINE (Frankie Hamilton) over een week het ziekenhuis in Haarlem mag verlaten en zij wil vervolgens bij Tobias in trekken. Tobias kan haar goed gebruiken wanneer zij hersteld is en de meisjes (Madeline van Geuns, Anita Gijssen en Gerda Meijer) kunnen haar de eerste tijd behulpzaam zijn. Zij is echter nog niet in staat zelf het huis te verlaten, of een eigen missie uit te voeren.

Tevens meldt hij (
413) dat het pinpoint van veld MARTINI 1400 meter naar het Noord-Westen is verschoven.

Londen (
278) stuurt via Tobias naar Henri Koot een bericht dat er separate sabotage groepen gevormd moeten worden, dit op voorspraak van PETER (Peter Borghouts) en FREEK (Gerben Wagenaar). Het plan om losse groepjes te gebruiken voor sabotage doeleinden heeft in Belgie en Frankrijk goed gewerkt.

Londen (
279) geeft aan dat Tobias, naar aanleiding van zijn bericht dat het pinpoint van veld MARTINI verschoven is, alle coordinaten van dit veld voor alle duidelijkheid opnieuw opgeven. Zolang Londen deze coordinaten niet heeft wordt er op dit veld niet gedropt. Men geeft Tobias aan dat hij code boek nr 3700 moet gebruiken.

Tobias informs London (412) that Josephine (Frankie Hamilton) will be allowed to leave the hospital next week. She has indicated that she wants to stay at Tobias's office and carry out some work. The girls Madeline, Laloe and Gerda will look after her and when she is recovered she can do some good work . The only consequence is that she is unable to leave the house when necessary or to do an other mission. What is London's opinion about this?

Tobias informs London (413) that the pinpoint of field MARTINI has been moved 1400 meters to the north-west. Tobias asks London which new code book he must use now.

London informs the DC, Henri Koot (278). Koot must setup small groups of a few men in each region who are able to carry out sabotage actions. They must do so under the command of a sabotage commander who must be appointed by Koot. This is recommended by Peter (Peter Zuid, Peter Borghouts) and Freek (Gerben Wagenaar). These men should be recruited from the most suitable men of the RVV, OD and KP resistance organisations. By setting up such small groups, the regions can keep the rest of the men in reserve and they can support possible military actions. The existing communications will be used to give orders to these groups via the zone commanders, or the regional sabotage commanders. This will be done verbally in order not to compromise their security. This set up of small sabotage groups worked very well in France and Belgium. London asks Koot how soon he can organise this?

London responds (279) on Tobias's message 413 that the pinpoint of field MARTINI has been moved 1400 meters to the north-west. Therefore he must resubmit the complete coordinates. He must do this twice so it will become clear where the pinpoint exactly is. Until London has not received this information this field will not be used to drop loads on.
Tobias is told he must use code book number 3700.



Dinsdag 16 januari, Tobias geeft meteen de volgende dag de coordinaten van veld Martini op, tevens geeft hij alleen over oude types codes te beschikken en niet over code boeken. Telegram heeft geen nummer.

London (280) informeert Tobias dat LEO (Bert de Goede) heeft Londen laten weten dat het centraal wapenmagazijn van de NBS in handen van de SD is gevallen. Weet Tobias hier ook iets van? Londen vindt het prima dat JOSEPHINE (Frankie Hamilton) voor Tobias gaat werken, er ligt immers geen nieuwe missie voor haar klaar. In de laatste regel van dit bericht staat een prive mededeling voor Tobias: Madame Tassati doet hem de groeten. (Wie is dit?)

Londen (
281) vraagt Tobias of hij een man (wie is deze agent?) met containers kan ontvangen op een van zijn droppingsvelden. Hij moet opgevangen worden en er moet vervoer naar Den Haag geregeld zijn. Vanaf woensdag wil men weer droppingen uitvoeren op de velden LALOE en MARTINI. Op MARTINI wordt een container gedropt die voorzien is van een wit kruis. Hierin zit de gevraagde 50.000 Gulden en nieuwe code boeken. Op LALOE wil men 24 containers droppen met granaten en munitie.

Tobias gives London the new coordinates for field MARTINI: 2250 meters from a rail and road crossing near Obdam, 3350 meters from the Protestant church at Spanbroek and 1750 meters from the road crossing at Spierdijk. Tobias only has an old type of code left and no code book. This message has not been numbered.

London informs Tobias (280) that Leo (Bert de Goede) that the central weapon store of the NBS has fallen into the hands of the German Sicherheitsdienst. Has Tobias heard about this? London agrees that Josephine will stay with Tobias at his office and work for him, since London has no other mission for her. madame Tassati sends Tobias her love. Who is madame Tassati?

London asks Tobias (281) to inform them soonest whether he can receive 3 special containers and an agent on one of his dropping fields. The man and his containers must be taken care of and transport must be arranged to get him to The Hague. Tobias must tell London on which field the man can be dropped. The RAF will try to drop loads on LALOE and MARTINI as from Wednesday night. On MARTINI some special packages will be dropped together with 50.000 Guilders and new codes for Tobias. This will be stored in a container marked with a white cross. On field LALOE a full load of containers will be dropped and 3 packages with grenades and ammunition.




Woensdag 17 januari, Tobias (415) geeft aan dat er geen centrale opslagplaats is voor wapens van de Nederlandse Binnenlandse Strijdkrachten, want de wapens liggen verspreid in diverse depots. Na de dropping van woensdag is veld LALOE beschikbaar om 'man-X' met containers te droppen, het vervoer is geregeld en men wacht op bericht op welke nacht de dropping plaats zal vinden. Tobias laat Eva weten wel weer zin in haar kookkunst te hebben.

Tobias (
416) laat Londen ook weten dat hij binnenkort met de volgende steden telefonisch verbinding heeft: Dordrecht, Rotterdam, Den Haag, Vreeswijk, Wijk bij Duurstede en Utrecht. Ook zijn er nu droppings velden beschikbaar zijn bij Alkmaar, North..., Wormerveer, Haarlem, Hilversum, Blaricum en Maarsen. Men gebruikt voor de telefonische verbindingen geen PTT centrales, maar speciale kabels van FF, PEN, GEB Amsterdam en kabels van de Genie. In Amsterdam zelf zijn op deze manier 20 illegale aansluiting gerealiseerd, twee ervan behoren aan zijn marconisten. Men is nu bezig om een nog grotere centrale te bouwen, dit met toestemming van commandant van Delta Centrum. Tobias hoopt dat Londen hiermee akkoord gaat.

Verder geeft Tobias (
417) aan dat hij de volgende berichten met code vel 7 zal coderen.

Pieter de Vos (
44) vraagt Londen om accu's van de bepaald type te droppen, het bericht is aardig verminkt.

Londen (
282) geeft aan om op veld EDINBURGH vanaf donderdag een complete lading containers en 3 pakketten te willen droppen.

Van bericht 283 is geen tekst beschikbaar/No text visible from message 283.


Tobias (284) moet de DC, Henri Koot, duidelijk maken dat er geen grote wapendepots aangelegd, of in stand gehouden mogen worden.

Tobias informs London (415) that there is no central NBS weapon store because all the weapons are spread out over many depots. After the dropping on field LALOE from Wednesday night that field will be ready to receive man-X (agent) with his containers. His transport to The Hague has been arranged. Tobias is awaiting advise from the ground crew at LALOE when the man can be dropped. Tobias is looking forward to have a Scandinavian meal again cooked by Eva.

Tobias informs London (416) that with permission of Henri Koot a new and bigger telephone exchanger will be build to connect Dordrecht, Rotterdam, The Hague, Vreeswijk, Wijk bij Duurstede and Utrecht. There is already a network connecting Alkmaar, dropping fields in North-Holland, Wormerveer, Haarlem, Hilversum, Blaricum and Maarsen. PTT exchanger are not usedbut only special cables from the FF, PEN, GEB-Amsterdam (electricity companies) and military cables of the Dutch military engineers. In Amsterdam there are 20 illegal connections, including Tobias's two WT operators. Tobias hopes London will agree with building a new underground exchange.

London informs Tobias (284) that he should tell Henri Koot that no large depots with weapons and material should be maintained. This as a reaction on the lost weapon depot in Rotterdam.




Donderdag 18 januari, Tobias (418) meldt dat er een Beaufighter neergeschoten is waarbij de piloot Arthur James Maton om het leven is gekomen, maar dat de navigator door het verzet is opgevangen. Tobias zal er voor zorgen dat Henry Stephen Radcliffe door de linies naar bevrijd gebied gebracht zal worden.

Hit by anti aircraft fire, the plane climbed to 2000 ft when navigator (Flt Sgt Henry Radcliffe) bailed out. Followed out by pilot (Flt Sgt Arthur Maton) whose parachute failed to open and tragically died. He is buried at Twisk. Flt Sgt Radcliffe was picked up by locals and eventually escaped through enemy lines to Canadian forces ('best cheese sandwich in his life'). Unrepayable debt to Dutch resistance heroes! Crew: F/Sgt (1399467) Arthur James MATON (Pilot) RAFVR - killed. F/Sgt Henry RADCLIFFE (Nav.) RAFVR - OK

Londen (285) vraagt Tobias om uit te zoeken wie van de RVV via het interne radionetwerk een bericht heeft verzonden dat Jan Thijssen (LANGE JAN) nog in leven is en zich in de strafgevangenis in Scheveningen bevindt. Via de Zweedse gezant wil RVV tot een uitwisseling komen.

Verder wil
Londen (286) van Henri Koot weten hoe hij denkt over een maatregel van de Duitser om Ausweisen te koppelen aan Persoonsbewijzen. Hierdoor zijn in een klap alle vervalste Ausweisen van het verzet ongeldig. Een informant denkt dat dit probleem alleen op te lossen is als Londen 200.000 blanco persoonsbewijzen stuurt.

Londen (
23) geeft aan dat het bericht van BACKGAMMON (Pieter de Vos) van gisteren waarin hij om accu's vraagt is dermate verminkt aangekomen dat men niet kan ontcijferen om welk type accu het gaat.

Tobias informs London (418) that yesterday, January 17th, a Beaufighter of Coastal Command was shot down near one of the dropping fields. Flight Sergeant Artur Maton from MOWDON was killed. Flight Sergeant Henry Radcliffe was saved by the resistance. His service number is 156298, he was born February 20th 1923 at Glasgow. He will be send through the lines.

London informs Henri Koot (285) that they received a message from the RVV via the Dutch internal radio network: "From the RVV to the Dutch Government. In contrast to earlier message it turns out that Lange Jan, alias Karel is still alive. He is imprisoned at Scheveningen. His real name is Jan Thijssen and he carried an identity card on the name of Maarten van Zeeland. He is in great danger. We strongly urge on an exchange via the Swedish council".

All the new Ausweisen (identity cards) will be booked in this new German register complete with te number of the identity card. the informant told London that it is then almost impossible for resistance workers to move through occupied Holland. Is it possible that London provides the resistance with 200.000 unnumbered identity cards which can be given to the illegal workers. Koot must give his opinion about this matter.

Vrijdag 19 januari, Tobias (419) meldt dat er geruchten zijn dat er een razzia op handen is die de volgende dag zou kunnen beginnen. De staf van Delta Centrum is zich uit voorzorg aan het verplaatsen omdat enkele secretaressen zijn opgepakt. Hierdoor zijn er nog geen antwoorden op de vragen die aan de DC (Henri Koot) gesteld zijn. Tobias heeft blijkbaar een aantal schuilplaatsen georganiseerd zodat zij gedurende een razzia toch door kunnen werken. Hij wil dat Londen bericht 283 herhaald want de medische termen van de medicijnen zijn verminkt binnengekomen. Tobias bedank "Papa Bols", zou dit Karel Klijzing kunnen zijn?

Tobias (
420) laat weten dat het bericht van de RVV over Jan Thijssen is verzonden op verzoek van Jaap van der Gaag, alias RICHARD, alias VICTOR. Men is het vervoer via OTTO (Philip Vermeer) en KO (Jan Brasser), beide van de RVV, voor het vervoer van wapens vanaf de velden LANCASTER en HUDSON aan het regelen.

Londen (
287) laat weten dat de inzet van duiven technisch niet mogelijk is, dit naar aanleiding van een vraag van Tobias in bericht 401.

Tobias informs London (419) that there are rumours again of a razzia starting Saturday January 20st. He is sorry that some questions for the DC (Henri Koot) have not yet been answered. Delta Centrum is on the move after a few of the secretaries have been arrested last night by a large police force. Tobias tells London they are nearly ready with their hiding places where they are able to continue working while the razzia is going on. He asks London to repeat their message number 283. The text about the needed medication has been mutilated. Tobias thanks 'Papa Bols'. It is most likely that Papa Bols is Karel Klijzing, before he escaped to England he lived in Schiedam. In Schiedam is the Blos Jenever factory located

Tobias informs London (420) that is was Richard, alias Victor (Jacob van der Gaag) of the RVV Amsterdam who did sent the message about Jan Thijssen. Tobias tells London he is preparing a weapon transport with weapons dropped on the fields LANCASTER and HUDSON in cooperation with Ko (Jan Brasser) and Otto (Philip Vermeer), both from the RVV Zaanstreek. Tobias asks London just to drop explosives and smoke bombs on these two fields. Tobias hopes both fields will be ready to receive loads by next week.

Zaterdag 20 januari
, Tobias zou op deze dag maar twee telegrammen hebben ontvangen: in het eerste bericht (
288) wordt aangegeven de telefoonlijnen naar de diverse steden niet te gebruiken tot dat Londen groen licht geeft.

In het tweede bericht (
289) wordt aangegeven dat drie Zweedse Rode Kruis schepen zeer spoedig in Nederland aan zullen komen. Zij zijn onder andere geladen met medicijnen en voedsel.

De eerste twee schepen de Noreg en de Dagmar Bratt liepen op 28 januari 1945 de haven van Delfzijl binnen. Het vrachtschip Hallaren volgde korte tijd later. Aan boord van de eerste twee schepen bevond zich zo'n 3700 ton aan voedsel. In de Hallaren bevond zich zon 4000 ton aan voedsel.
