Memorial to Vera Atkins in Saint Senara's Church Churchyard Zennor
Vera Atkins a Romanian MATA HARI in the services of the SOE.
Her career as an SOE operative took off under Maurice Buckmaster (1902-1992). During her time as an SOE officer the indomitable Atkins sent 470 agents including 39 women behind enemy lines into German-occupied French territory. Her spying persona inspired film makers as she became Miss Moneypenny in a James Bond movie and also the main character in Genevieve Simms movie Into the Dark.
