In these photos, made by British intelligence when André was secretly brought over to England from France in the second year of World War II, André was given several disguises-in case he was picked up by the Nazis for questioning. 

His SIS number was MI6 agent 44921.

André sent copies of these photos back to his sister Mady in the US and thus we have a record of the kind and clairvoyant face with which he surmounted incredible obstacles in the course of spying on the Germans and eventually surviving three concentration camps, Natzweiler-Struthof, Allach and Dachau.
