Operation SPARK

SPARK was a WWII-era project to identify and track magical practitioners & assets. Begun during the inter-war years by the Laundry's unofficial precursor organization, it was initially directed exclusively at German practitioners, but grew to include mages and would-be mages across the globe.1 The SPARK List, compiled throughout the war, was Above Secret even within SOE Section X.2 Because SPARK was purely an espionage mission, it conflicted with the mandate of the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) in Europe – one more reason it was kept quiet.

Domestically, the SPARK List was used to recruit sorcerers for the war effort3, and to screen incoming refugees for Persons of Special Interest who were offered a similar choice.

Daughter-operations included: AGATE, EASTERN, JUBILEE, MOONLIGHT
