Event description

Description

Barbara Bond describes the historical background and purpose of MI9's wartime escape and evasion mapping programme - the maps they produced, the covert help they were given by a famous Scottish map publisher, how maps were smuggled into the prisoner of war camps and how they were instrumental in some remarkable escapes, particularly that of Airey Neave from Colditz.
