    Hello, Unable to attend unfortunately as it's a bit last minute, but sounds like a good day. I've recently finished Harry Verlanders book, so would have been nice to expand my knowledge!

    Pity - have only just noticed this posting - will there be a repeat sometime?

    What was the "Operation Sussex" film like? Had the pleasure of meeting Louis Guyomard on several occasions in Provence over the last 10 years, saddened by his death earlier this year. Would be interested in seeing this film if it's available somewhere?

    Cheers

    In 2013 we will be hosting 3 Conferences in March, July and September. The July Conference will be in honour of Maj General Colin Gubbins who headed SOE at the close of WWII and will examine his career and influences on post war SF.

    Anyone interested PM me with your email address so I can add you to the mailing list.

    Hi, I notice that Steven Kippax did the talk on 'The Logistics of Clandestine War—Supplying SOE/OSS'
    Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction in regards to getting in touch with him. I would like to ask him a few questions about the topic that he spoke about.

    Thanks
