Comment: [i] KAL'MARO: Unidentified covername. Also occurs in MOSCOW-PARIS No. 375 of 11th April 1940 (3/NBF/T1795) and No. 427 of 28th April 1940 (3/NBF/T1798). Presumably cognate with French CALMAR and Italian CALAMARO: possibly a dialectal form. No word corresponding to the Russian spelling has been found and the Russian transliteration has, therefore, been retained.
