English-speaking collaborators with Italy?

Post by Komi » 15 Apr 2021 13:00

Aside from Ezra Pound, did Italy utilize any other collaborators from the English-speaking world during WW2? I'm asking about any forms of collaboration, whether it was propaganda, military, espionage, sabotage, etc.
I'd discount people who already had Italian nationality (such as members of Italian diasporas).

I know that before the war in Ireland, the fascist politician Eoin O'Duffy was a big fan of Mussolini and even tossed around the idea of an "Irish Brigade" to fight in Abyssinia, but it seems like during WW2 his contacts with the Axis were limited to Germany. I could be wrong though...

Wikipedia claims this Englishman worked for Italian intelligence, does anybody know any details on what he did for them?
