One thought on “Krystana Skarbek SOE Agent”

  1. Alan,

    I’m very interested in the SOE and where they went during WWII.

    Do you think you would ever do a walking tour to any locations

    We must have missed each other in 1 Para as I got there the penultimate winter in Bulford in Jan 1986.
