Remembering Noor Inayat Khan

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. Find out more about Noor via the Royal British Legion's interactive Women at War 100 timeline here.
