British specialists such as Kim Philby and Captain Alan Hillgarth, who had been involved in Intelligence services during the Spanish Civil War, contributed to the activities of the British Secret Services in Spain during the Second World War. Their main activities included the security of Gibraltar, counteracting German Intelligence in the Straits, and unmasking Spanish agents controlled by the Abwehr. This article concentrates on the particular difficulties of organising the work of the Special Operations Executive and its plans for guerrilla-type activity in the case of a German military occupation of Spain, whose neutrality, in the view of Great Britain, had to be carefully preserved.
