    • What Did You Do in the War, Daddy?
      This is the 'lost' episode of Secret Army and was never broadcast. In 1969, the 25th anniversary of the liberation of Brussels is being celebrated. Albert Foiret, Monique (now Monique Durnford), Natalie Chantrens, and Alain are honoured at a ceremony at a Belgian airfield. And they and Kessler (now called Manfred Dorf) are all interviewed for a British television programme called In Our Time, which is making a documentary about the work of Lifeline. Monique visits Yvette's grave, and later joins Albert and the others for a reunion at the Candide, which is still owned by Albert.
