New light on Rudolf Hess flight to Britain .

A diary entry made by the wife of a senior British intelligence officer has rekindled interest in the 1941 flight to England by Hitler's deputy, Rudolf Hess.

Britain's foreign intelligence agency MI6 has released few of its files from the World War II era, but a diary kept by Kay Foley offers some clues as to what was going on at that time. Her husband was renowned spy Frank Foley, who was the agency's chief of station in Berlin.

Entries in the diary are all very brief, but The Telegraph said by cross-checking dates of her husband's travels, it appears Foley had hopes of using the deputy fuehrer to Britain's benefit in Berlin. The diary confirms Foley spent two weeks in Lisbon, at the same time one of Hess' intermediaries was also in the Portuguese capital.

However, MI6 has repeatedly denied it had much interaction with Hess.

Conspiracy theories abound in Britain about Hess, who reportedly died in a 1942 plane crash. Among them is that it was not the real Hess who died in the crash, and others that claim Hess was kept by MI6 in Britain and used in an anti-Nazi propaganda campaign.
