A NEW exhibition at the Battle of Britain Bunker and Visitor Centre in Uxbridge celebrates the exploits of a Jewish radar expert during Operation Jubilee.

Jack Nissenthall’s perilous story is one of six tales of bravery featured in Dieppe 80.

Nissenthall was a radar expert with a skillset so refined he was one of only a handful of officers with the technical ability required for a top-secret mission.

He was part of Operation Jubilee, a raid on Dieppe in occupied France on August 19, 1942. 

His mission was so clandestine even his 11 bodyguards knew nothing about it, though they had been ordered to shoot him should he fall into enemy hands. 

Dieppe 80 is the first public exhibition featuring Nissenthall’s story, and the first-time artefacts from his story have been placed on display. The exhibition runs from August 19 for a year.

It also features the stories of five other military personnel, including Amy Mates, a Women’s Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF) plotter. She was on duty at the bunker during Operation Jubilee, tracking Allied aircraft en route to France.
