    We were staying not far from Euston Station, and seeing this sculpture to a remarkably brave young lady was something I felt drawn to.

    This young lady grew up close to Gordon Park and her image looks across this small garden area, a quiet dignified memorial to an SOE agent who was murdered by the SS.

    I recall seeing her brother talking at Runnymede where her name is inscribed speaking of how very proud he was of his sister, incredibly moving. (BBC documentary).

    I am not sure if this is posted in the correct section should the moderation / Admins team feel the need to move it , by all means.
