The Tempsford Memorial commemorates women secret agents who were flown out of RAF Tempsford to aid resistance movements in Europe during the Second World War.
After wartime agent Eileen Nearne died poor and alone in Torquay in 2010, Professor Tazi Husain, chairman of the Tempsford Memorial Trust, led a campaign to build a memorial to honour the role of women in the war effort
75 women secret agents are named on the Tempsford Memorial, representing 13 different nationalities. Noor Inayat Khan is commemorated on the top row of the monument.
Ivett & Reed, stonemasons from Cambridge, crafted the memorial. 80 local people helped put together the dove mosaic. The monument was unveiled by HRH The Prince of Wales, on 3 December 2013.
