For the industrialist and founder of the Fraser of Allander Institute see Hugh Fraser.

Hugh Fraser (1921-2001) was an officer in the Special Operations Executive and MI5.[1]

His career, as described in his Telegraph obituary closely matches that of an un-named officer mentioned in Christopher Andrew's authorised history of MI5:

The Service officer who chaired the inter-departmental Forcible Attack Working Group (FAWG) , founded on C Branch's initiative, had had an adventurous career in SOE during the Second World War, which included travelling though Crete dressed as a shepherd with explosives hidden in animal dung. FAWG specialized in devising and testing perimeter fencing and intruder-detection systems.[2]
