Jack Jones a KGB agent? They're having a laugh...


Talk about 'Reds under the Beds'.

We're now expected to believe that Jack Jones (above) was a KGB agent.
Does anyone seriously believe that the Kremlin would think that a butcher who was a member of the Walmington on Sea Home Guard would gain enough important information to justify being kept on the KGB payroll?
Captain Mainwaring may have thought the work that he and his platoon did was extremely important, but I doubt if the Soviets shared his opinion. Besides, the Soviet Union were our allies at the time.

What will the 'reds under the beds' brigade come up with next I wonder?
That Arthur Wilson was working for Moscow too?

He could have helped them land spies at Walmington on Sea?

This isn't actually connected to this topic but a very interesting article that In an interview with former CIA officer Phillip Giraldi, FBI translator turned whistleblower Sibel Edmonds named Douglas Feith, Paul Wolfowitz, and Richard Perle as having been wiretapped and recorded discussing plans with the Turkish ambassador in the Summer of 2001 to invade Iraq and occupy the Kurdish region bordering Turkey.

Do you think it had anything to do with this?

Turkey trained 9/11 hijackers

Of course the 9/11 hijackers were ALL recruited with various western intelligence agencies to fight in Chechnya from the Hamburg cell (German BND, to Abu Qatada (MI6) to Turkey training 9/11 hijackers to fight in Chechnya and the Alleged 20th hijacker Black French guy in the US to the lead financier through various NGO’s and banks that the hijackers were financed in the US by Abdullah Bin Laden.
There’s separate main stream articles that mentions this directly or indirectly

When the Russians did visit Walmington,Arthur Wilson was deputed to welcome them over the head of Mainwaring,who was predictably incensed at this breach of protocol.Perhaps the Russians had demanded this arrangement:Wilson ,who had all manner of skills he never bothered to mention,could quite easily have been fluent in Russian.His experiences in commercial banking may have led to serious doubts about capitalism which he was altogether too suave to introduce into mundane conversation.

Neil,

Good post. Complete piece of British TV trivia, but John Le Mesurier did once star in a Dennis Potter play called 'Traitor', in the role of a Philby-style defector living in Moscow.
