On 3rd Sept 1939 Britain Declared War on Nazi Germany. The need for intelligence was paramount, so in 1941 Churchill commissioned a Combined Services Detailed Interrogation Centre (CSDIC). This centre was Latimer House.
Latimer House was a special POW camp and interrogation centre, fitted out with listening devices and staffed with secret listeners . Over 200 intelligence officers operated within its walls, all waiting to discover the captured Generals’ secrets.
Latimer House was critical to the war effort, and it’s existence was classified for 50 years. Even now nearly 80 years later, some Top Secret files haven’t been declassified. Some of those secrets are hidden in the basement of Latimer House, where a tunnel still sealed under the official secrets act.
Join us to discover the fate of one of the hidden listeners…
