WWII 'spy' prunes sold for £2,700 (UK)

Secret weapons from World War II, including two prunes, sold for £2,700 when they went under the hammer. Richard Marshall, from Crook, in County Durham, sold the memorabilia which belonged to his great-aunt, Doreen Mulot, a British agent. The prunes had their stones removed and replaced with miniature maps or other documents which were smuggled to prisoners of war in occupied countries.
