In 2013 the Trust co-sponsored, along with Handa Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence and the Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence at St Andrew's University,  two National Security Fellowship Schemes - aided by Cambridge University's Centre for Science and Policy and RCUK's Global Uncertainties Programme.  The first, in the Spring of 2013, was entitled "Detecting and Countering Improvised Explosive Devices and Home-Made Explosives" and the second, in the Autumn, was on "Horizon-Scanning for Future Terrorist Threats".  The aim of these schemes is to encourage knowledge exchange between researchers in academia and industry and officials/specialists with responsibility in these areas.

Airey Neave's book "Little Cyclone" has been re-published and can be ordered through the following link:  https://www.bitebackpublishing.com/books/little-cyclone-paperback.  The book tells the true story of Andree de Jongh, a young artist in Brussels in 1941 who was nicknamed Little Cyclone by her father.  She set up the Comet Line to smuggle trapped soldiers and airmen through France and across the Pyrenees into Spain.  This escape line saved the lives of more than 800 Allied servicemen.

The book was recently the subject of this feature in the Telegraph:  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/history/world-war-two/9930526/The-secrets-of-the-Second-World-War-Comet-Line-are-revealed.html
