Krystyna Skarbek, 1940s. This amazingly brave woman was a WW II agent for the Allies. She was very shabbily treated by them after 1945 - abandoned without resources, in effect. She was subsequently murdered by a former colleague in a Kensington hotel. Her murderer was eventually hanged for this. Countess Skarbek still owned a Kensington apartment in the early 1970s. Krystyna knew Ian Fleming and is supposed to be the original of at least two of his 'Bond Girls' in his novels.
