... . (8) What is visible in the anti-communist literature is a shift in emphasis on the perceived main threat represented by the CP. In the early post-war years that seems to have been centred on the plethora of CP front organisations such as the friendship societies. This is presumably the early influence of the Foreign Office's Information Research Department (IRD) in supplying anti-communist material. Focused on events in Europe, it was the the Soviet-run front organisations which struck IRD. But from the early 1950s, as the NATO-Soviet confrontation in Europe waned, it is the CP's industrial wing and the network it had in the trade unions which is perceived as the threat. You can see it ...

... the bomb. 'One of the most widely circulated reports had the bombing carried out by Basque ETA terrorists on behalf of the Sandinistas. Curiously the reports were based on leaks- phone-calls to major newspapers in Washington and the U.S. from Intelligence sources, including the State Department's Office of Public Diplomacy'. The latter is a kind of updated IRD, and 'public diplomacy' is a 1980s euphemism for disinformation and psychological warfare. Morgan found that 'The same story was also being pushed by what the Pentagon correspondent of the U.S. television network ABC called 'reliable CIA sources'.' Few disinformation stories can be traced back to their sources, but in this instance Morgan got close. ...

... the Cominform would actually have written that 'new and and concentrated effort must be made by specially suitable undercover activists to penetrate into that bastion of British capitalism and so set up the strongest possible Communist cells within the Conservative Party....'. This document, I suspect, is a product of the Foreign Office's Information Research Department (IRD). This impression is greatly strengthened by Braddock's report of another document, called 'MVD Information' (MVD became the KGB) 'which circulates to executives of the Soviet secret police and secret service'. In this 'it has been predicted that by June 1962, the number of fully-trained men and women who will be sent to work as ...

65. Wallace on Pincher on Wallace [Lobster #21 (May 1991)]
... of Information Policy during his time as Defence Secretary or Northern Ireland Secretary. p. 162 'Information Policy was largely an Army and Defence Intelligence Service operation.' Information Policy was staffed by the Army and the Information Research Department. During my time at HQ Northern Ireland none of the staff belonged to Defence Intelligence. Pincher's failure to mention the IRD involvement is very interesting because of the key input the department made to the unit and the fact that its presence there has been widely reported over the past years. p. 163 'It is certain that Wallace was involved in the rather crude concoction of a diary of a disaffected IRA man, supposed to have been secured in a raid ...

Although this is incomplete and under researched, we thought it worth putting out now. The origins of IRD 1947 saw the creation of the Foreign Office's Information Research Department (IRD). It is generally accepted that IRD was the brain-child of the then Labour M.P. Christopher Mayhew, who had served in one of the 'secret armies' (The Phantoms) and the Special Operations Executive (SOE) during the war. The received chronology is that ...

Evidence of previous examples is hard to find, but skimming through Charles Foley's Legacy of Strife: Cyprus from rebellion to civil war (Penguin, Harmondsworth, 1964) recently I noticed this section on p104: 'No effort was spared by the Secretariat to win over the foreign press with titillating stories. Sometimes, for the benefit of American correspondents, "captured documents" which they were not allowed ...

... Wallace by his colleagues. Wallace is also the masked gun-man on the top corner. The lithographic plate made to print this is hanging on Wallace's sitting room wall. Dowling comments on the Information Policy/Public Relations relationship: 'The Information Policy department was the cannon, Public Relations was merely the shell.' (p62) He mentions the IRD officer, Hugh Mooney, seconded to Information Policy- 'an Anglo-Irishman who liaised with the Foreign Office and the British Information Service outlets in foreign embassies.'
