In his first report to the War Office and the Admiralty, he related how two Germans had allegedly been spying about Rusper and its hinterland, adding: It is hardly necessary to draw attention to the fact that the knowledge of the country lying on and between the North and South Downs, including as it does the important heights of Hindhead, Box Hill, and the Towers of Holmbush, Rusper Church and Lyne House, would be of greatest value to an invading force advancing from the direction of the coast-line lying between Dover and Portsmouth, as also an intimate acquaintance with the Railway Lines leading to the Guildford, Dorking and Tunbridge junctions from the Coast.
85 Haldane, who did not believe in German plots, probably anticipated the new SSB’s failure and its subsequent dissolution. Haldane’s decision to give the green light for the restructuring and enlargement of the intelligence community was a tactical concession to conservative pressure groups that had important repercussions for the emerging intelligence community and its relationship with the state. Since neither the Secretary for War nor the majority of the Liberal government had any real interest in counter-espionage, and both probably believed that the new SSB would be a passing affair, the ensuing reorganization of the intelligence community was left entirely in the hands of men with an explicitly conservative, if not reactionary, frame of mind.
52 Just a few months after Edmonds had submitted this memorandum to the War Office, Le Queux published a short story entitled The Back-Door of England. The protagonist, Ray Raymond, describes the German espionage machinery to a friend in the following terms: We know that our eastern counties have been divided into districts by the Germans, and in each one or more secret agents are busily at work taking notes of food supplies, forage, blacksmiths’ shops, motorcars for transport, the destruction of telegraphs and telephones, positions for artillery, and the best mode of advance south to London.
