A history of MI9's efforts in providing secret mapping during WWII. These maps, often printed on silk, were produced for pilots, the SOE and for smuggling to prisoners as an escape aid. It is one of those stories that has fallen between the cracks of secrecy and bad filing, only now, thanks to the investigative work of Barbara Bond are we able to see something like the full story of this race to beat the Germans. ~ Sue Baker
