The Secret WW2 Learning Network and its partners hosted

the official ‘grand reveal’ of four blue plaques in memory of Brighton's Secret Agents

This unique and very special all-day commemorative day had the theme
Carve Their Names With Pride

during the afternoon with a unique book & film get-together for everyone who’s

been inspired by WW2's ‘secret warriors’ - with talks by special guests,

book signings and short films, plus a bookshop by CITY BOOKS and a café.
