    An amazing woman. She deserves to be well known and always honoured. So you wonder what happened to the traitor?

    According to the Daily Mail article his name was Henry Dericourt. Per Wikipedia, unfortunately his trial failed to convict him.

    There's a bit of stuff on here about Dericourt if you do a search.

    Over the years there have been much debate here on the forum on the Dericourt affair and alleged linkage to Claude Dansey of the SIS.

    This is one of many.......Henri Dericourt (SOE Traitor)

    Thanks for the info. Extraordinary controversy around him. If he was a double agent and Diana Rowden a sacrificial operative it was a really dumb idea. :(
