    Next week Suzanne Dando is leading a team of women across The Pyrennees, in the footsteps of WWII SOE Agent Nancy Wake, an SOE Agent who was parachuted into france with the codename La Souris Blanche.

    The route follows the 'ratline' which allowed downed Allied airmen, SOE agents and resistants to escape and evade the Gestapo from occupied France into neutral Spain across the mountains.

    Guys, amongst those trekking with Suzanne Dando NEXT WEEK for the Poppy Appeal is the first female Naval holder of the Military Cross - LMA Kate Nesbitt RN.

    I know it is yet another charity appeal but if you would like to sponsor the team - and learn a bit more please visit the website at;
