Subject – Letter to Ken Sturmey’s Parents

Date – 1944

Donor – AllenSandra

Street – Outside Rodbourne

Location – Morvan, France

Additional Information – We were surprised to see this letter as the SAS were usually very secretive about their operations. At the time Ken was behind German lines in the Morvan region of Central France in Operation Houndsworth. We believe that in this particular operation it was a policy to keep the parents or wives of the SAS members informed.
