Noor Inayat Khan celebrated during South Asian Heritage Month

As part of #SouthAsianHeritageMonth, The Royal British Legion (RBL) are celebrating FANY and SOE Agent Noor Inayat Khan. Read more about her story on the RBL website here.

Noor Inayat Khan - one of the 39 FANYs who went into the field during WWII - was part of the ill-fated Prosper network, which operated around Paris. Noor was eventually the only SOE wireless operator in Paris.

She was arrested and under torture said nothing, and twice tried to escape, but was sent to Dachau, where she was shot in September 1944.
