Ian Fleming at Camp-X

Some confusion as to the location of an hotel room, and the hotel room turning out to be a mock-up, do not take away the thrill of learning Ian Fleming trained at Camp-X during the War.

Author Ian Flemingís failure in a wartime espionage test, described in a recently published biography as at variance with the deeds of his fictional character, James Bond, didnít happen exactly as described in the biography, a former security chief says.

The Life of Ian Fleming, the biography by British author John Pearson, says Fleming was unable to carry out an order to kill a man, described as a dangerous enemy agent, in a Toronto hotel room during the Second World War when Fleming was taking intelligence training near Oshawa, Ontario.
