Nancy Wake

Nancy Wake, who died on August 7 aged 98, was among the most decorated secret agents of the Second World War. She had become famed as a resourceful, dauntless Resistance leader, who topped the Gestapo’s most-wanted list and had saved hundreds of Allied lives.

IMO: She tried to get a job as an MP where I lived in Sydney but did not succeed. I recall her well, from when she was canvassing. When you think of the total rubbish that do get made MPs in the UK like Cameron and Clegg, it seems a pity now but she did compete against Evatt, probably a mistake.
