A spy called 'Rose'


Amongst files released today at the National Archives, is the personal file of former SOE agent Eileen Nearne whose death triggered hundreds to gather at her funeral.

It was said that she never spoke about her past, which was not strictly true as the Today programme has unearthed a Timewatch documentary from 1997 where she was interviewed at length under her pseudonym - Rose.
