    Autogiro (et al).
    This was a particularly difficult list. I couldn't get many of them to come up anywhere - which made me suspect that there might have been transposition errors from the original document(s).
    Some were on CWGC. Some might not have been in the LG (rellies in occupied territories?).
    I found a Francois Van't Sant on the staff of the Netherlands refugee Govt in UK. Not come across that location indicator before. Perhaps our Dutch members can enlighten us on what looks like a specific Dutch variation of the familial locater van/von, etc.
