Camp X and Station M Exhibit

This exhibit includes pieces from Camp X and Station M. Both are codenames for allied Second World War paramilitary and spy training installations.

Camp X was located on the northwestern shore of Lake Ontario between Whitby and Oshawa at what is now known as Intrepid Park. The park gets its name from Sir William Stephenson and his codename while he was with the British Security Coordination.

Station M was code for a secret manufacturing facility that produced gadgets and covert material for the British Security Coordination. There is evidence that Station M was located within the walls of Casa Loma.

These events and settings are said to have inspired the James Bond series written by Ian Fleming. The character himself is speculated to have been based on Sir William Stephenson.
