The Prince of Wales has unveiled a memorial to the women who were secret agents during World War II. More than 80 British women are believed to have infiltrated enemy lines during the war, with four being awarded the George Cross for their bravery.
Noreen Riols, who was in the Special Operations Executive (SOE), described the women as “very brave, very courageous, and very afraid”, and said they mostly acted as couriers behind enemy lines.
