IWM interviews

Regular visitors to the Imperial War Museum's Collections website will have noticed that many of its interviews with SOE veterans are now available to listen online. Among those who worked for F Section are Baker Street staff Maurice Buckmaster, Vera Atkins and Selwyn Jepson, and agents Odette Hallowes, Yvonne Cormeau, Tony Brooks, Jacques Poirier, Harry Rée, Robert Boiteux and Bob Maloubier.

Some, such as an eleven-hour ramble with George Starr, are for dedicated researchers only. But Robert Sheppard's moving recollections of physical and moral survival in no fewer than four concentration camps are worth anyone's time.
