POLISH SOE SCHOOL AT AUDLEY END - Karel Margry tells the story of Audley End House in Essex which served as a secret training school for agents of the Special Operations Executive's Polish Country Section. The Death of an Earl - Chris Ransted takes us through the story of Charles Henry George Howard, the 20th Earl of Suffolk and 13th Earl of Berkshire who was killed whilst trying to defuse an unexploded bomb in Erith — an act for which he was to be posthumously awarded the George Cross. A Tribute to Grandmother Lela Carayannis - Lela Carayannis led the largest resistance organisation in Greece during the war — her adopted grandson, George Pararas-Carayannis recounts the tale of this remarkable woman. 'Mincemeat' Revisited - In October 2009, the official history of MI5 by Christopher Andrew (The Defence of the Realm: The Authorized History of MI5 published by Allen Lane, London) confirmed once and for all the identity of the 'Man Who Never Was', the corpse floated ashore in Spain in 1943, as being that of Glyndwr Michael and also stated that he had died from rat poisoning. Three months earlier, Roger Morgan, who was the first person to discover the true identity of 'Major Martin'  revealed in After the Battle in 1996, argued his case in the play Mincemeat produced by the Cardboard Citizens Company. Cherbourg Naval Base 1940-44 - The role of Cherbourg as a German naval base is described and illustrated  by Jean Paul Pallud as a prelude to the story of the battle for the port to be published in After the Battle issue 147.
