Such is the well-founded belief of the Duke of Norfolk who, as Brigadier Miles Fitzalan-Howard of the Grenadier Guards, commanded BRIXMIS, the British military mission in Germany for two years in the late 1950s.
In the forty years during which they operated under the noses of the KGB, BRIXMIS agents ranged far and wide behind the Iron Curtain, probing and measuring the strength of the Soviet military threat to the West and brazenly stealing some of the Red Army's most closely-guarded operational secrets.
The Soviet spy, George Blake, was stationed for some of the time near BRIXMIS headquarters and, as a member of MI6, had access to their operational plans.
