Excerpts from

Dispatches from Camp-X

When the green light came on and with a stentorian shout of “GO, GO, GO! I stepped out into the darkness, immediately to be tossed about, head over heels like a leaf in a gale, falling like a stone. Suddenly there was a loud crack and I wasn’t falling any more! I looked up and saw Andy and Jack’s parachutes just above me. Great! It had been a good exit...”
From Hamish Pelham Burn
Then an almighty flash and a detonation that almost knocked us over. F______G time pencils! Wonderful invention, but not the soul of reliability. There was much shouting and about a dozen Germans erupted from the hut with Schmeissers letting loose all over the place. Noisy, but not like the SS! Then a dispatch rider on a motorcycle started off down the road. Not at all a good idea, so I decided to knock him off, despite revealing our position; got him with the second shot. In the meantime, like the well-trained soldiers they were, Andy and Jack began to pick off Germans with deliberate, well aimed single shots. I joined in. It was all over in about three minutes. We got them all...
From Hamish Pelham Burn
One of the most shocking discoveries that I made during my research of Camp-X, was to learn that the British were actually spying on Canada, William Stephenson and the British Security Co-ordination.
It is highly likely that in 1943, while visiting Camp-X, Ian Fleming befriended Paul Dehn. A favourite activity of the officers at the Camp was to gather in the officers’ Mess Hall on a Saturday night to enjoy a drink and spin old yarns of their previous lives. During one of these memorable evenings, the two may well have had a very colourful conversation during which Fleming told Dehn of his idea to write a series of books about a super agent: much later, in 1964, Paul Dehn wrote the screenplay for Fleming’s blockbuster movie, ‘Goldfinger.’

“I have had a chance to read your last book ‘Dispatches from Camp-X. Great read, unbelievable stories!”
Thanks again, Terry - Kingston
I have just finished the book, (Dispatches from Camp-X), an absolute great accompanying work to your other CAMP X publications, and yet another reminder to those of us, South of the Border, of just how much the history of the U.S. and Canada (not just national security, but in general) is intertwined.”
“Lynn, thoroughly enjoyed the book launch, actually my first book launch, I cannot put the book down, it is like someone sitting across from you at a kitchen table telling a story! Can’t wait for the screenplay and the red carpet. I even like the font - getting old with these eyes - Continue writing and telling the story of what happened right in our back yards.
Cheers” Linda - Oshawa
“...there is valuable new material about the camp in Dispatches from Camp-X. Scottish-born Captain Hamish Pelham Burn’s first person account of how he and two other instructors from Camp X staged a daring raid and destroyed a German radar installation in Brittany just before D-Day is the most dramatic. Also included is an account of Oxford-educated, British Major Paul E. Dehn, a Camp-X instructor in psychological warfare, who after the war became a highly successful screenwriter of spy and other mystery films such as Goldfinger (1964), The Spy Who Came in From the Cold (1965), and Murder on the Orient Express (1974).”
