Topic: The ‘Real’ James Bond - Fleming Was His Boss!

Hello folks - just saw this on the good ol’ BBC...so it must be true!


A wartime spy thought by his family to have inspired James Bond has been given a "007" gravestone after relatives found he had served under Bond author Ian Fleming.

James Charles Bond, from Swansea, "took his secret past to his grave" when he died in 1995.

His grandson Stephen Phillips found out he had served under Fleming in WW2 as a Special Operations Executive (SOE).

And on that note, thread closed since the subject is covered elsewhere.
