Between 1943 – 1945 the quiet village of Hurley in Berkshire became the site of a secret communication station, known as codename VICTOR, which was used by the Office of Strategic Service (OSS), the forerunner of the CIA. The station provided an essential link between undercover secret agents working in Nazi occupied Europe and the Supreme Allied Expeditionary Force.

On 4th June 2019 there will be a unique opportunity to learn more about Station VICTOR and the invaluable work done to obtain vital intelligence by spying on the Nazi war machine.

From 3.00pm there will be an exhibition in the Tythe Barn opposite The Olde Bell in Hurley and at 7.30 a blue commemorative plaque will be unveiled.
