Milford Information

Mentioned in dispatches and decorated on a number of occasions Milford Crabtree has served queen and country for over thirty years. Lost behind enemy lines in the first Iraqi conflict, he surfaced three months later in Istanbul with a smile on his face and an irritated John Thomas. Those three months are still covered by the official secrets act.

Speaking five foreign languages and a master of disguise it was inevitable that Milford would come to the attention of MI6 headhunters.

A man of letters, known for his ready wit and useful sayings, Milford Crabtree is often quoted.

Little is known about his background but rumour has it that he is the black sheep of a family of old school landed gentry. He has been known to tell people that he is 42nd in line to the throne. Not sure if it’s got something to do with the Monarchy or Ideal Standard !

Always one for the ladies and in times of hardship befriending the odd sailor, Milford has rubbed shoulders, and other parts of his anatomy, with those in high places. He has seen active service in the Andes.

Not much else about him is in the public domain. So we are still left puzzling over ‘who is Milford Crabtree ?’.

Black Propagana

Agent Smith writes:

"Millford Crabtree is merely the British name used by an enemy agent when
operating on British territory. In Italy, he uses the name Julio
Scarlotti, and in Austria, he is Hans Schlacht, or sometimes Hans
Auschwinger, which was his adopted mother's maiden name.

He was an illegitimate child born to a Viennese teenager in 1930.
Raised at the Austrian Sisters of Charity Orphanage. He was adopted by
the rich couple Kurt Schlacht and Maria Auschwinger. During the War,
Kurt and Maria became envoys to Mussolini's Italy, and were hanged as
war criminals after the allied victoy. A screw up in military orders
allowed the youth to be present at the hanging, and he was forever
changed by what he saw. He is now an evil enemy spy, roving Europe,
running operations for any villain who can meet his price, if they need
an attack made on the west. "

This is simply not true, but in the world of espionage lies like this will be perpetrated.
