Herbert Palmer, GPO clerk
The German spy Jan Ter Braak relocated to this address after he left 58 St Barnabas Road. According to the Wikipedia article on Ter Braak, in January 1941, he was contacted by the Food Office about his ration card, which its records showed had been issued to a man named Burton living in Homefields, Addlestone, Surrey. This was because the card had been supplied by the Abwehr using numbers given by the double agent SNOW (Arthur Owens). Ter Braak evidently suspected that he would be detected, and told his landlady that he had to leave for London. However, he relocated to 11 Montague Road.
