Josef Jakobs
Birth: Jun. 30, 1898
Luxembourg, Luxembourg
Death: Aug. 15, 1941
Greater London, England

World War II German Spy. On January 31, 1941, Corporal Jakobs parachuted into Ramsey in Huntingdonshire, England. He was not only spotted landing, but had also broken his ankle so he was easily apprehended. He was court marshalled for treachery and as a result was put to death by firing squad. Jakobs was the last person executed in the Tower of London. His body was buried in an unmarked grave at St. Mary's Roman Catholic Cemetery. (bio by: Rickie Hufford)
