Not long now before two becomes three! ZP801, the Pride of Moray, and ZP802, the City of Elgin are about to be joined by our third @P8A_PoseidonRAF! But what will it be called? The big unveil is TODAY! Stay tuned... #SecuringTheSkies @CXX_Squadron https://t.co/vXCMU5X3yH

Our @P8A_PoseidonRAF will be flying for essential training again today from @Kinloss_Bks! If you see it, make sure you take a snap for @RAFLossiemouth! https://t.co/fSUqTQ0oGT https://t.co/a7ubC8tHYO

More imagery from Op AZOTIZE, where #TeamLossie's 6 Squadron is deployed as part of @NATO Baltic Air Policing. We are working closely with @EjercitoAire who are flying F-18s from Šiauliai Air Base, #SecuringTheSkies over Alliance airspace. #WeAreNATO https://t.co/cKpId45QGF

Congratulations to all of you! Hopefully you're getting hands on with one of these beauties soon 👇 https://t.co/YkvgCGeUX5 https://t.co/QAHS4NX4ow

We have been testing our interoperability within the Alliance, working closely with @NATO ships in Air-Maritime Integration sorties, and Joint Attack Terminal Controllers in Air-Land Integration exercises.

Still have questions? Ask us anything about #BalticAirPolicing! 3/3 https://t.co/kBH1FrYgjH

If an unidentified or suspicious aircraft is detected in the Baltic region, @RoyalAirForce Typhoons or @EjercitoAire F-18s will scramble to intercept the aircraft and determine its intentions.

Stationed @RAFLossiemouth? Cycle to Spey Bay and try find some dolphins. No luck this time... ProTip: if it’s a tailwind on the way out. It’s not going to be fun on the way back 🥵. https://t.co/SKMwHHDk9p

Noor Khan was posthumously awarded the George Cross, for displaying the most conspicuous courage, both moral and physical, over a period of more than 12 months.

We Will Remember Her.

Khan was transferred to Dachau concentration camp in 1944. 

In a final act of defiance, her final word as the German firing squad raised their weapons...

Noor Khan was betrayed by a Frenchwoman and arrested by the Gestapo. 

Despite being imprisoned and tortured, she refused to reveal any information. 

She attempted escape, but was re-captured and classified as "highly dangerous". This meant solitary confinement.

Despite the risks she faced by being a British spy in occupied France, Khan refused to leave - despite all of the agents in her network being arrested. 

Her work became crucial to the war effort - she was the only link between Paris agents and London.

Noor was the first female radio operator to be sent into occupied France. 

Assuming the name Jeanne-Marie Renier, Khan posed as a children's nurse.

To the SOE, she was known by the codename 'Madeleine'.

Khan fled to England after France fell at the end of 1940. 

She joined the WAAF, and was trained as a wireless operator. 

Her linguistic and technical skills would prove useful, as she was posted to the France section of the SOE around 1943.
