Reference:KV 2/3536
Description: Angel ALCAZAR DE VELASCO / Manuel Garcia YLLERA LAGO, alias Vman 312 (Abwehr code name): Spanish. The activities of ALCAZAR DE VELASCO and YLLERA LAGO, who arrived in early 1941 as, respectively, Press Attache at the Spanish Embassy in London and his secretary (VELASCO did not speak English and therefore required constant attendance). One of the original members of the Falange and close to the pro-German Foreign Minister Ramon SUNER, VELASCO's true role was to monitor his colleagues and to facilitate espionage. In particular he gave orders to PIERNAVIEJA DEL POZO, the controller of the supposed Welsh terrorist (and actual MI5 double agent) GW. In 1942, after his return to Madrid, VELASCO was involved in selling fabricated intelligence from a mythical group of 'agents' in the UK to the Germans and Japanese
