Personal stories from our Friends and supporters

This section of our web site is reserved for stories of family/friend connections to relevant 'secret war' accounts.

If you have one of your own that you feel worthy of a wider audience, please submit it for consideration via

"She was the best of us all"

The first contribution comes from Magda Thomas, Friend of The SWW2LN and one of the 'stars' of the BBC TV series Secret Agent Selection: WW2  If you watched the series, Magda was the expert stalker! If you haven't watched the programme...try it, it was very good and realistic. Magda tells the tragic story of her great-aunt who served in the Polish Resistance.

"An Invaluable Asset to the Squadron"

The second tribute comes from supporter Steve Stokes (and his son, Graeme), with thanks to Carol Browne, Information Officer for The SWW2LN and Paul McCue, Trustee. Steve tells us the story of his decorated cousin, Flight Sergeant Arthur Stokes DFM.

Commander Kenneth Cohen organised the largest tripartite intelligence operation of the war

Our third tribute comes from supporter Colin CohenIt's not often we have contributions about the Secret Intelligence Service (S.I.S. - popularly known as M.I.6), other than the excellent newsletters from our friend Geoffrey Pidgeon, an S.I.S. veteran of WW2. Colin has provided these fascinating images and a note concerning his father.
