They played important roles in operations like The Dambusters raid on the Mohne Dam, Operation Market Garden (Arnhem) “A Bridge Too Far” it was the Intelligence Corps that warned of the German Panzer units resting in Arnhem, The destruction of the V1 rockets at Peenemunde and later the V2, the destruction of the “Heavy Water” production plant in Norway… told in the movie “The Heroes of Telemark”.
They were definitely the unsung heroes of our military history.
