Object of the Month - November 2015

LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01

This month’s Object of the Month is a group photograph of the Latimer House Listeners.

During the Second World War, Latimer House was used to inter important German prisoners. Their conversations with each other were secretly listened to by a group of German speakers, either native Germans who had fled the Nazis prior to the outbreak of war, or other linguists with a command of the language, under the command of M.I.6.

Much valuable intelligence was gathered by these men, including information on the development of the V1 and V2 missiles.
