World War Cthulhu: Set Europe Ablaze
Special Operations Executive
Eventually, the PCs will become operatives of this organisation. It was formed on 22 July 1940 with the objective of carrying out espionage, sabotage and reconnaissance in occupied Europe. Although its main headquarters were at 64 Baker Street, London (thus its operatives came to be known as “Baker Street Irregulars”) it had training establishments in various places around the world, especially England, Scotland and Canada.
An operative’s training could vary depending on their eventual role, but most of those who passed through the Special Training Schools learned about hand-to-hand combat, small arms handling, demolitions, cryptography, signalling and the various techniques of espionage “tradecraft”.
