History Maker Noor Inayat-Khan

In 1943, at the height of the Second World War, Noor Inayat-Khan became one of the first female radio operators to go undercover in Nazi-occupied France. She had volunteered for the Special Operations Executive, a secret organisation that worked behind enemy lines.

Funded by AIM Biffa Award History Makers and with the help of the Girlguiding Association, the Commonwealth War Grave Commission is telling the story of Noor at an interactive exhibition at Runnymede Memorial. This video celebrates the opening of the exhibition; you can find out more about Noor and the other AIM Biffa Award History Makers here and find out about more about how the CWGF is remembering Noor’s incredible story here.
