SECRET AGENTS AND WORLD WAR II – MYTHS, FACTS & FICTION
Special Function with talks this Tuesday 15th November at Old Court Room, 118 Church St Brighton BN1 1UD
The Secret WW2 Learning Charity was established in 2014 by Martyn Cox and Marytn Bell.
Its aim is to create a greater public awareness of the activities and contributions of the allied intelligence operatives and personnel from the SOE (Special Operations Executive).
Together with the Brighton and Hove Heritage Commission they held a historic ceremony last Saturday at the Corn Exchange.
Over 300 guests, including WW2 veterans, defence attaches, serving forces personnel and relatives of SOE operatives saw talks on the SOE and an unprecedented four blue plaque unveiling to Brighton’s SOE operatives.
The Secret-WW2 charity are running events all this week in Brighton with talks by authors of new books on WWII and the clandestine activities taking place.
