Reilly, Sidney George (born Sigmound Rosenblum in Russia 1873/74?-1925)

A British spy with connections to MI6, was involved with attempts to overthrow the nascent Bolshevik regime in 1918. His subsequent 'adventures', matrimonial difficulties and questionable business dealings led to his being let go by the British. He died a prisoner of the Soviets in 1925. He is believed to be the inspiration for Ian Fleming's 007, James Bond.
