The Lady Vanishes

ONE of the most compelling& interesting podcast I’ve ever listened to!! So hope for Sally that she finds a conclusion to her mother’s disappearance and that she is at peace with whatever the outcome.

Signature Match Possibly...?

I’m just wondering if maybe Marion filled out forms at the school where she would have used block printing. If so, then that handwriting could be compared to the passenger card. Just a thought.
Hang in there Sally. You’re a wonderful daughter and mother.
