The Rev. Dr. Donald Currie Caskie DD OBE OCF (22 May 1902 – 27 December 1983) was a minister in the Church of Scotland, best known for his exploits in France during World War II, during which he helped an estimated 2,000 Allied sailors, soldiers and airmen to escape from occupied France (mainly through Spain). The ‘Fasti’ – the record of all Church of Scotland ministers since the Reformation – simply mentions that he was “engaged in church and patriotic duties in France, 1939-1945”. In his autobiography The Tartan Pimpernel he states that ‘he had been called to Paris in 1935.’
