Brighton's Secret Agents

Paul McCue giving a rivetting account of the agents' activities

At a ceremony in the Corn Exchange today four blue plaques commemorating Brighton's Secret Agents were unveiled together for the first time. This is the fulfilment of a project by the Secret WW2 Learning Network in partnership with the University of Sussex Resistance Studies Network, supported by the B&H Commemorative Plaque Panel and the Gerry Holdsworth Special Forces Charitable Trust.

The event was well-attended my many local dignatories, veterans & members of the Armed Forces, and representatives of the French and Italian Embassies.  Dame Vera Lynn sent a letter of support.

The plaques.
The Secret Agents are:-
Lt. Jacqueline Nearne, MBE CdeG. 
Capt. Ronald Taylor
Capt. Michael Trotobas
Edward Zeff MBE, CdeG

The plaques are expected to find their final resting places at properties with strong connections with the agents in early 2017.
