    Nancy Wake - The White Mouse


    Bloody Hell 8O , Some Woman!

    Remember seeing some documentary about SOE agents earlier this year, and they interviewed this very nice Canadian Grandmother, surrounded by dogs , grandchildren and a nice Granny type house etc.

    Very softly spoken, but good grief!

    "Oh I never spoken about those times at all , it was war, and we just did what we were trained to do, , but I wouldn't mind seeing some of my old friends again" , in between descriptions of her in shootouts with Germans, and being badly wounded, but still getting her badly wounded male colleague away by stealing a car after another shootout and crashing a checkpoint etc.

    Even her Daughter sat there goggle eyed, I think it was the first time she'd ever heard the story too.

    Incredible women, I don't think we can ever honour them enough.
