Excellent profile of Violette Szabo, who won the George Cross posthumously for her bravery.
I saw this movie as a young girl and I am now writing a book profiling the women who won the George Cross while working for the SOE in France.
The movie had a tremendous impact on me as youngster and I memorized the poem used by Szabo as part of her code. "Yours" was written by Leo Marks, Cryptographer with the SOE and provided to Szabo. I would like to obtain a copy of the movie on video. It has not been recorded in that format so I would be most interested in contacting the owners of the production to see if they would provide a copy and what the cost might be. An excellent movie which should be put in video or DVD format to preserve the content for future generations.
