Does anyone know who this might be please ? It is signed in two places but it is quite scratched to the bottom so having difficulty deciphering..... Height - 9" Width 2.25" I have picture of the signatures but having difficulty mastering the art of getting the file size right !

not quite doing it for me Greg........   You may be correct, but comparing this with his sig. in the book, they don't look very similar, and the only comparison I have looks to be showing that he used his full first name rather than what appears to me as just B.             But who knows :)
P.S.   having now looked at the second pic., have to agree that I can see what looks like Edenfalk, so you possibly correct.

The first part of the signature in picture 2 above looks to be 'OK' I think for 'Edenfalk Skruf'

Attached are a couple of other examples for comparison, I appreciate the first image is not great quality!

Still stuck on trying to decipher the wording in the third image......

Hope these help a little.

thanks Greg  -  yes, it was the third picture that I looked at first, and was that one that threw me off the scent.       moral of the story - look at all pix before engaging mouth. ;D
My source for comparison is 'Fire & Sea' by Pina & Vigier, who comment that he joined Skruff in 1953 as chief designer, and left them and went to Kosta in 1978.
