Yvonne was a WAAF and a FANY. She had Anglo-French parentage and was bi-lingual which was great attraction to SOE. She was recruited, trained as wireless operator and parachuted into France in March 1944. Soon after Operation Cadillac she was captured and interrogated. Yvonne barely survived her eventual incarceration at Ravensbrück.
