And then it turned out that Lonsdale was the head of the intelligence group, who worked for the Warsaw Pact. As a result, British services uncovered a whole network of criminals who worked for the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Treaty.
Lonsdale was imprisoned for 25 years, of which he spent only three years in the cell. In prison, he was allowed to translate, because he was a specialist in Chinese. He wrote a whole textbook, according to which many are still studying.
Then he was exchanged for British spies caught in the USSR. There was an exchange, which is mentioned in the film "The Dead Season". There is Colonel Abel, who talks about the difficulties of intelligence activity. The prototype of this hero is Mr. Lonsdale.

He did business, and simultaneously engaged in espionage in the field of British submarines, bacteriological and chemical weapons. During the service, he sent a lot of cipher messages and merged a lot of important information into the Soviet.
He was arrested and convicted as a British citizen - and only later the Secret service discovered that he was Russian.
