Charting the group’s activities and its subsequent discovery and dissolution at the hands of spymaster Maxwell Knight (reputedly the inspiration for Ian Fleming’s ‘M’), this is an informative account of a relatively little-known domestic threat faced by Britain in the early months of the war.

Located at the Strand Palace Hotel, on the Strand, diners can access this Indian restaurant either through the hotel foyer or by its own, separate entrance on Burleigh Street – just look for the big red awning. The head chef here hails from Kerala, so expect dishes from India's south to be well-represented, alongside options from other regions as well as classic curry house staples. That means a menu that includes lamb samosa, chicken tikka, seabass varuval, various biryani and tandoori salmon with dill, ginger, yoghurt, lime and grape chutney. Pre-theatre menus, thali lunches, an Indian afternoon tea and seasonal specials also feature.
