"S.O.E." stands for "Special Operations Executive". It was a British World War II Military Intelligence outfit. The S.O.E. was officially formed by Hugh Dalton, the U.K. Minister of Economic Warfare, after cabinet authorization on July 22, 1940. Its aims were to undertake sabotage, espionage, and reconnaissance in World War II Europe under enemy occupation. Later, war operations were also conducted in South East Asia as well, against any Axis powers there, such as Japan, and also to provide assistance to any regional resistance movements. The S.O.E. also had nicknames and unofficial names, such as "Churchill's Secret Army", "The Baker Street Irregulars", and "The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare".
