During the Second World War the British War Office intelligence branch (MI-9) hired Nubar Gulbenkian to create a secret operation to escort British survivors of the Dunkirk debacle from France to Spain. Gulbenkian was in his thirties, wealthy and an official in the neutral Iranian legation in London. He had sought out British agents and volunteered to carry out undercover assignments in foreign countries. Disguised as a traveling salesman, he hired, in the southern French city of Perpignan, garage owner Michel Pareyre who successfully escorted British escapees over the Pyrenees to Spain.
