Hundreds of people paid their respects at the funeral in Torquay of World War II heroine Eileen Nearne.
Miss Nearne died of a heart attack, aged 89, at her home in the town on 2 September 2010.
Only then did details emerge of her work as a British spy behind enemy lines in Paris in 1944.
She was parachuted into occupied France, where she worked as a courier and wireless operator, but was caught by the Gestapo.
She was tortured and taken to a concentration camp.
However, she escaped and was flown back to England after the Americans moved in to Leipzig, where she was in hiding.
She was awarded the MBE and the French Croix de Guerre.
Miss Nearne was severely affected by her experiences in the concentration camp and was a recluse for much of her life.
At her funeral on 21 September, she was given full military honours.
