Noor Inayat Khan Blue Plaque

We are delighted that a blue plaque is being added to the house in Bloomsbury, London, where Corps member Noor Inayat Khan GC once lived with her family.

Blue plaques are used to show connection between a place and a famous person or event, and this is the first one to honour a woman of Indian origin.

Noor worked as an agent in Paris during the Second World War, and is thought to be Britain's first Muslim war heroine in Europe.

She was captured by the Gestapo, and died in September 1944 at Dachau concentration camp.
