The travelling exhibition on SOE wireless operator Noor Inayat Khan was officially opened at the Museum on Saturday 6 June. Following a welcome to the special guests by Museum Director Dudley Hooley, the organiser of the exhibition, Neena Sohal, thanked the Museum for hosting the exhibition, saying she was delighted that Tangmere was the first venue on the Noor SE England Trail because it was from this airfield that Noor was flown into France to commence her valuable but dangerous work.
Following the introductions, Shrabani Basu, author of ‘The Spy Princess – the life of Noor Inayat Khan’ gave a brief overview of Noor’s life and this was followed by the showing of the a film ‘Snowdrop’ based on a short story written by Noor. The opening ceremony concluded with a short recital by members of International Sufi School.
The exhibition is open daily from 1000 until 1700 until Sunday 21 June.
