Research Unit F.5 – Honneur et Patrie Poste de la Resistance Française: Object, Method and Effect

Share on Facebook
Google +1

This Political Warfare Executive report is an appraisal of the object, method and effect of the clandestine radio station known as F.5 – Honneur et Patrie Poste de la Resistance Française, broadcasting to Occupied France.


Its object is to transmit to resistance groups all the orders and directives of the Conseil de Resistance and Comite Directeur Central.

It aims at gradually instructing the mass of the French people in the methods of underground warfare in accordance with these directives.

The general line therefore is necessarily dependent on the agreed policy between HMG as interpreted by SOE and PWE, the French National Committee of Liberation and the heads of the resistance movements themselves.


There are two transmissions daily, one of which is sometimes a repeat. The technique is straightforward broadcasting. No definite cover is used as to the actual location of the transmitter, whose whereabouts are left vague, although the tone would suggest that it was inside France itself.

Specific transmission times were fixed in agreement with the resistance groups in France.

Normal transmission is recorded since the general instructions and technique of sabotage etc. do not require live recording.

It may be necessary in moments of operational stress to ask for live recording as priority A and this request will be put forward at the proper moment.

The programme is repeated because of difficulties on the part of the audience to catch the full transmission in one séance.

There is no question of coordination with sibs or leaflets of a white nature. It is obvious of course that the clandestine press is closely linked with F.5


It is unnecessary to go into any long discussion on the evidence of reception of this station, since it is essentially an operational station and the only evidence we are interested in is in the technical possibilities of its being heard.
