Long, Leo

   A student of Anthony Blunt at Cambridge, Long was recruited to work for the Soviet service by his old tutor during World War II. Long, who was working in the British Security Service (MI5), was given the code name “Ralph” by the NKVD. He apparently provided Moscow with information about British counterintelligence operations against the Soviets and the Nazi intelligence service. Long also passed material garnered from the decryption of German communications, as well as information on British plans for the occupation of Germany. Long later confessed to MI5 in exchange for immunity from prosecution.
