Not sure about a list existing, as voice intercept operators (linguists) were part of military intelligence.
See this link for info:  https://www.royalsignalsmuseum.co.uk/ww1-ww2-communications/
The Museum may be able to help with your research.

You may like to amend the spelling of the topic title. It might be mistaken for a surname or a place.  :)

The GHQ Liaison Regiment depended on linguists - there is a book about this Regt, some of which is available on Google Books.
