No. 41 NAI DFA Secretary's Files A2
DUBLIN, 12 April 1941
At 10.30 hours on 11.4.'41, Pryce telephoned me to say that two friends had come over to see certain bits and pieces and asked where they could see them.
I telephoned you and, subsequent to your conversation with External Affairs, you gave me instructions which I carried out.
At 15.00 hours, Pryce accompanied by Flight Lieut. Hawkins and Flt./Lt. Colley came to Baldonnel. Hawkins is an ex-Colonel of the Royal Artillery and is the Air Ministry representative at Belfast. He is an expert on foreign aircraft and foreign bombs and bomb equipment. Colley (aged 35 yrs.) was 12 years in U.S.A. and served in the American Air Force. He is still an American citizen but is serving with the R.A.F. and is an expert on wireless.
Their interest was in some new bomb equipment which is operated by wireless and which is reported to be in use on the F.W. Condor aircraft. No such equipment was found amongst the wreckage at Baldonnel.
I showed them a list of the crashed Condor equipment which is at Rineanna and they decided that it was not necessary for them to inspect it.
In conversation later, the main items of interest were:-
Sgd. P. A. MULCAHY Col.
