Noor Inayat-Khan: A Woman of Conspicuous Courage

About

With the help of the Girlguiding Association, the Commonwealth War Graves Foundation is telling the story of Noor Inayat-Khan.

Armed with a false passport and a pistol, Noor became the first woman radio operator to be sent to Nazi–occupied France. Noor was an unlikely candidate to engage in espionage in the Second World War, but she did so with a “steely strength of will”.

She sacrificed her life for the cause of freedom and here the CWGF is keeping her story alive, through its new interactive exhibition - launching in March 2020.

75 years after the war, Noor’s courage and determination are inspirational. Her legacy lives on at Runnymede Air Forces Memorial.

Find out about more about how the CWGF is remembering Noor’s incredible story here.
