1940, London, England. In search of a light in the darkness, British forces assemble a secret arm of covert and clandestine operators to take the fight to the Nazis. They were the Special Operations Executive (SOE). Sir William Stephenson was charged to train Canadian and American operatives at one of the SOE establishments, the Special Training School 103 known as Camp X in Whitby, Ontario. These men and women joined an international X force: a network of spies trained in the art of sabotage, propaganda and illicit warfare with a mission to intercept and infiltrate the enemy.
X represents the faceless sacrifice and commitment of countless SOE operatives.
The X keeps the light in the darkness alive by honouring those who can only be identified as X…
Long before James Bond became a cult figure the premise of his daring operations, suave nature and his cool head, the foundations of international intelligence were being brokered from an office in the Rockefeller Center by a Man Called Intrepid.
In 1940, newly appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill instigated coordination of
three secret intelligence departments that formed recently before the outbreak of WWII.
It was the Special Operations Executive (SOE), nicknamed the Ministry of Gentlemanly Warfare and the Man Called Intrepid was Sir William Stephenson (SWS). Heading up the North American Branch of the SOE, he was a decorated WWI pilot, inventor, entrepreneur, Canadian married to an American tobacco heiress, and spy master.
SWS was Churchill’s man to convince President Franklin Roosevelt and J Edgar Hoover to help the war efforts and trained spy’s in Camp X in Whitby Ontario. The foundations being built by SWS and his network led to establishing the OSS and in turn the CIA.
