    There are several theories. One of which is that it relates to the Zimmermann Telegram.

    Do you mean the one that Fleming lived on the route of the 007 bus?

    Can they not just release the next Bond film on Amazon or Netflix or something. I like Daniel Craig as Bond.

    Thoughts on who will be next?

    Think I read recently that when Fleming was staying in Jamaica just before he wrote Casino Royale he lived near a church called St James and it was on Bond Street. Some of the details there I've probably remembered wrong but it was along those lines.

    I like the books read all of them several times. Not a good choice if you're trying to stay sober, the amount of booze he puts away during a meal would sink a blue whale.

    And a quick look on wiki tells me it’s something to do with the SOE during WW2

    They tried to sell it to Netflix for $500m.

    Netflix laughed at them.

    Or it might have something to do with a signature used by a spy of Queen Elizabeth 1 or maybe it was to do with a code used to break the German diplomatic code in WW1.
    All lifted from another wiki search.
