George BROWN: British. BROWN first came to notice in 1944 seeking repatriation to the UK from Spain, having escaped from Germany where he had settled in the 1920s and opened a restaurant. Interrogation left suspicions but no firm evidence that he was a German agent but a 1949 military report from a captured German document revealed his real role as an agent of the Abwehr
