Operation Jedburgh was a clandestine WWII operation where members of  SOE [plus U.S, the Free French and the Dutch and Belgian Armies] were dropped into Nazi-occupied Europe to meet the local resistance and wreak sabotage against the Germans.

Fred Bailey was a Wireless Operator for Jedburgh team, ‘Citroen’. He was parachuted into occupied France soon after D-Day and shares his fascinating story.
