52. JOYCE WILDING: SOE FANY
Kate Vigurs, Joyce Wilding
Thursday 27th June 12:30 (60 Min)
Stove Tent by Viking
One hundred-year-old Joyce Wilding was a member of the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry during the Second World War. Over 3000 women worked for FANY on behalf of Special Operations Executive. Joyce's career was exemplary. Working as a driver and a wireless operator, her career culminated in working for SOE’s Camouflage Section. She would meet submarines and ships, pick up packages and take them to London – later realising she was handling documents and paperwork coming in from Occupied Europe to be forged for agents going into the field. Join SOE historian Dr Kate Vigurs, as she talks to Joyce about her wartime work and what it meant to have been part of such a remarkable organisation during the Second World War.
