Join author Carolinda Witt as she discusses her biographical release Double Agent Celery: MI5's Crooked Hero.

You never know what you will find when you researching your ancestry but imagine Carolinda Witt’s surprise when she discovered that her mysterious grandfather was actually Walter Dicketts, MI5's double agent 'Celery.'

Walter Dicketts, an ex RNAS officer and confidence trickster with twenty-three fake names, volunteered to infiltrate the German Secret Service to bring back crucial secrets about Nazi invasion plans for Britain during WW2.

A recent guest on Richard Fidler's ABC Conversations, discover Carolinda's seven year investigation to uncover her grandfather's fascinating life.

Books will be available for purchase on the day.
