Join Dr Kate Vigurs and Justin Saddington to discover more about the women of the SOE, forerunners of today’s Special Forces.

The workshop on 3 October will provide a unique insight into the Special Operations Executive with a  specific focus on the extraordinary women who served in the F-Section.

The Special Operations Forces operated behind enemy lines and was instrumental in coordinating resistance networks and communicating intelligence for the Allies in the Second World War. Participants will be given access to objects used by these brave and secretive operators.

SOE expert Dr Kate Vigurs and the National Army Museum Research Curator Justin Saddington will lead this engaging and interactive evening where light refreshments will be provided.
