Wiltshire wife discovers husband was spy years after death

Audrey and Glyn Phillips were married for 64 years, but she had no idea he had been keeping a secret about his past all that time.

Audrey, from Trowbridge, discovered the "emotional" accounts in Glyn's paperwork which detailed his role within Operation X-X.

The operation was set up at the start of World War Two to get captured German spies to feed misinformation to their troops.
