SOE MEMORIAL, Lambeth

SOE Memorial
SOE MEMORIAL, Lambeth

Memorial to the SOE - Special Operations Executive - in front of Lambeth Palace. The SOE was secretly formed to recruit and deploy agents, men and women of all nationalities, who volunteered to continue the fight for freedom in enemy occupied countries during World War Two. 117 agents did not return. The bust is of one of them, Violette Szabo (1921-1945). The memorial also commemorates the Heroes of Telemark, who raided the Norsk Hydro plant in Norway in 1943, and the Maquis, the French Resistance.
