O Mundo das Sombras is incorporated in this blog

In order to organize all the materials of my research I decided today to incorporate in this blog posts previously published in another blog I created in the year 2005, which covers the same topic, but written in Portuguese, named O Mundo das Sombras. See it here. From now on the posts will be written in both languages.

Derry last adress


I wrote about him here after a meeting we had in Periana (Malaga, Spain). Now I found his last adress in this picture published here.
He wrote a book of memoirs, translated to Portuguese, his son Bill helping, that I found at Foyle's, signed. I phone him then just asking if he had been there autographing it. He reply: no!
Later when I met him he signed again «spies like us», joking!
