Allied agents in the British Free Corps (?)

Post by Viktor.S » 21 May 2020 15:57

Hello everyone,

Do we know if British intelligence services were able to infiltrate the British Free Corps in the Waffen SS and plant any double-agents/informers in this unit? I know this unit was quite small, but I thought it was worth asking. Perhaps some British POWs may have been encouraged by their officers to join the unit as spies, or try and sabotage it from within? It would be interesting to know.

Thanks.
