‘My mother thought I was working for the Ministry of Ag. and Fish.’ So begins Noreen Riols’ compelling memoir of her time as a member of Churchill’s ‘secret army’, the Special Forces Executive. It was 1941 and, just before her eighteenth birthday, Noreen received her call up papers, and was faced with either working in a munitions factory or joining the WRENS. Liking the look of the Wrens uniform, Noreen opted for that. But when one of her interviewers realized she spoke fluent French, she was directed to a government building on Baker Street. It was SOE headquarters, where she was immediately recruited into F-Section, led by Colonel Maurice Buckmaster.
