Thame Local History
Thame Park's World War II Service

As war came, Thame Park was taken over the Government, and Sir Frank Bowden moved out for the duration.

The park was first of all home to a party of refugees from the Spanish Civil War. A local stabbing incident ended their stay.

The Special Overseas Executive, or SOE, then used the house to train its agents for service in France. For a time, Thame Park became a small part of France.
