Friday 30 June 1995
Using over 700 exhibits, documents, photographs and film footage, including previously restricted material, Secret War aims to lay the twin folk myths of the spy as romantic hero and unseen agent of state control. Highlights include coded messages, enciphering machines (left), suicide pills, sabotage devices and confidential letters. Special displays deal with the often questionable activities of MI5 and MI6, the science of code breaking and the Second World War as seen by the Special Operations Executive and the nascent SAS.
Perhaps the most fascinating innovations though are two multi-media presentations which enable the visitor to experience something of the terror of being an agent of the SOE dropped behind enemy lines during the Second World War. Ever wanted to be 007? Now's your chance.
