Ann Bonsor was recruited into the FANY in October 1942.  Identified as being of the right sort, she was sent to Special Training School No 52 at Thame Park in Oxfordshire. This was one of many stately homes used by SOE and amusingly, some suggested that SOE stood for “Stately ’Omes of England”.

PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO CONSIDER THIS
Legasee is one of the first consolidated attempts to document the war-time experiences of men and women who have served their country.  While remembrance ceremonies and battle anniversaries are regularly reported on TV,  this coverage rarely focuses on veterans’ personal experiences for more than a few seconds and is of limited value as an educational tool or a record of individual achievement. Legasee aims to cover military life in much more depth by focusing on personal stories and viewpoints. If you think this work is important, please consider a donation. PLEASE DONATE NOW
