    Thanks Michael

    Most grateful; interesting piece by her friend.
    Is my assumption correct that the memorial is in the churchyard?

    Quite a sad story isn't it the MOD not telling her parents of how ill she was terrible if you ask me.
    The memorial is in Keswick but not far from the church.
    Have sent you an e-mail with the original pictures because i have had to crop the hell out of them to get them to fit them onto the forum ok.

    Regards Michael.

    Section Officer NOOR (Nora) INAYAT-KHAN
    G C, Mentioned in Despatches

    9901, Women's Auxiliary Air Force
    seconded to W.T.S. (F.A.N.Y.), attd., Special Operations Executive
    who died
    on 13 September 1944
    (Served as Nora). Daughter of Mrs. O. R. Inayat-Khan, of Oxford.
    Remembered with honour
    RUNNYMEDE MEMORIAL

    In case it is of wider interest, I noticed that in 2012 the National Archives are doing some free workshops for schools which includes a 'video-conference' with Noor Inayat Khan. The part of Noor Kahn is played by an historical interpreter, who one assumes must have studied her SOE file, as the school children are going to do.

    Thanks Clive

    Again most welcome.

    I remember when I first recorded Esther Mary the thought went through my mind I wonder what the response was from the squad, or whatever they were called, when the NCO in charge called out her name???

    Quote:
    During the period of hostilities 335 members of the A.T.S. were killed, 94 were reported missing, 302 were wounded and 20 became prisoners of war.

    As a quick question does anyone have any further information on the 20 who became POW? where and when etc.
