The longest surviving female SOE agent working in occupied France, she paved the way for D-Day, but was never acknowledged by her male colleagues.


Recruited to Bletchley Park during the war she became one of the first ever computer operators – and read Hitler’s messages.

JEAN ARGLES, aged 97

She worked as an SOE operative, running agents throughout the war and deciphering codes, as her sister worked with Bletchley Park and her father was in a POW camp.
