Lily Sergeyev, a Frenchwoman of White Russian origin, had agreed to come to England as a double agent on condition that her beloved little dog, Babs, was smuggled in for her by MI5. When MI5 failed to do that, she was so angry she looked for revenge. Lily believed Babs had been sacrificed by MI5 – had been killed as a convenient solution to Lily’s nagging and threats about ceasing to mislead German Intelligence. We can never truly understand the close relationship Lily had with her dog. We have all had a dog or maybe lost one but every day Lily was reminded that the double cross system she worked for double crossed her.
