Found some information on Philip George Doyne Adams: On the outbreak of the Second World War he immediately joined up. On the strength of his French and Arabic, he was made an Intelligence officer, given a large revolver and told to attach himself to the Australian Army clearing the Vichy French out of Lebanon. He thus found himself fighting people who, before the war, had been his friends. Some weeks later, at the age of 23, he was appointed Governor of Tyre. Which organization employed him? MI6?
