British Front Organisations, mid 20thC

Dear H-Business Network,

Can anyone suggest one or two good examples of British front organisations operating from the 1950s to the 1970s? I'm writing a thesis chapter on London Rubber Insustries and their front organisations, but could do with something to compare them against.

Any ideas?


My Advance Thanks,


Jess Borge
