Former Royal Marine And SIS Officer In Moscow Dies

Posted on March 2, 2016

In 1988 Bagshaw became first secretary at the British Embassy in Moscow where he reported on political and military developments in the Soviet Union. He then returned to London to help to prepare Stella Remington, the future director-general of MI5, for her historic meeting with the KGB in its headquarters and chief prison, the Lubyanka. Ostensibly the purpose was to help the Russians come to terms with working in a democracy. The actual meeting was, Rimington later recalled, “like wild animals suddenly presented with their prey in circumstances where they couldn’t eat it.”
