    Default No. 2 SE Training Section, Beaulieu, 1943

    Hi all,

    I would like to ask if anybody could provide me full name and more details about this unit?
    I know that some Czechoslovak WOPs were there trained as S.E (ASG) operators as an emergency staff before the full Radar Operator can be trained.

    TIA

    Searching all my available books and internet I found no information about this unit unfortunately.
    Only the abbreviations list leads me to conclusion it was No. 2 Secret Equipment Training Section.

    Any ideas where I can found any more information?

    TIA

    Hi Pavel

    SE usually stood for 'Special Equipment' and referred to Radar

    Would this site be of any help?

    SOE Finishing School

    I have the book SOE The Special Operations Executive
    by
    M.R.D. Foot
    in which there is a table of letters and acronyms
    explained but nothing close to No. 2 SE Training Section, Beaulieu
    There are references to silent killing training, disguises
    and such.
    I have another book, not here of course, which I can
    get tomorrow.
    Non of the above gives me any confidence that they are useful.
    Oh well....................

    Hi all,

    Malcom - thanks - you are right!
    Robert - this was for sure RAF unit so nothing to do with the SOE
