There is something almost haunting about this photo. So simple, so seemingly carefree, and yet she was MI5 agent and the photograph was taken to make a bunch of documents seem 'more authentic' during WW2. The documents led to the eventual allied victory, after they were found with a body that washed up on a beach. The body and documents were a British plant, but I wonder what happened to this girl?
