      Noor Inayat Khan was a daughter of Indian royalty and an incredible SOE Agent operating in Paris in occupied France. Khan managed to broadcast messages through to England despite the fact that her network had been infiltrated before she had even arrived. After her capture by the Gestapo, they were able to send decoy messages due to Khan’s meticulous documentation of her orders. However, Khan steadfastly refused to give any further information right up until her execution in the concentration camp in Dachau proving her a resilient and truly brave spirit.
