Peggy Knight performance

Holy Trinity Churches Special Event for Christmas

The Fabulous Lesley Smith (Curator of Tutbury Castle) as Peggy Knight

In 1944 a young woman, who had been previously a shorthand typist at the electricity board in North London, was parachuted into Nazi occupied France. She was a member of SOE and had only received two weeks training and one practice parachute jump.

Her story of immense courage and dignity in the face of the most dangerous of situations is both breathtaking and remarkable as she was recorded moving straight through the middle of enemy lines on her bicycle.

Peggy’s story is little known but now is the time to find her. An ordinary woman who you would pass in the street without a second glance, but she was extraordinary, as you will discover.
