Please note that some entries, for persons who have not been clearly identified and for whom no local connection has been established, have been omitted, but will be added to the list if more information becomes available. This includes some names which are included in the official 1982 Roll of Honour, with no supporting information

  5. The presence in St Lo Prison of this Australian after deportation from Jersey is based on the recollections of fellow political prisoner Joe Miere. But Gilly Carr, who has researched all the political prisoners says that there is no record of his existence and it might be a case of mistaken identity on the part of Mr Miere
