An American friend of mine is an avid yatchtman and an amateur naval historian.  A favorite port of call for his sailboat the Rio is the Port of Nassau.  According to his research he has been able to establish that the Pilar was in Nassau waters at the time of the death of Sir Harry Oakes.

This opens the possibility that Pilar with a two-man crew was the vessel that docked overnight at Nassau harbour on July 8, 1943 when Harry Oakes was murdered.  It has been suggested by myself and others that the BSC under the control of Ian Fleming mounted an operation to "terminate" the Duke of Windsor's gold bullion laundering operation.

Mr Peter Swanson plans to write a series of articles based on this theory.  He has my co-operation and support.  I hope you will read these articles and comment as best you can.  Who knows, maybe you might solve the crime of the century!

There is an author named Michael S Morris  who is writing a history of the Pilar. Keep an eye out for it.
