Francis Nearne SOE file - free download

The National Archives a free copy of Francis Nearne's WW2 Special Operations Executive file for a month through its Documents Online service at www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documentsonline/details-result.asp?Edoc_Id=8766191. Francis was a brother to two other agents, Jacqueline and Eileen Nearne, though apparently not a patch on either! Eileen's story as a radio operator in occupied Frances was revealed for the first time in 2010. There's more on the story at www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/news/667.htm.

Not necessarily useful for your own research, but it's always interesting to see examples of record types!
