He was an enthusiastic anti-Fascist, and Soviet Russia was the land of his dreams. He succeeded, after long efforts, in gaining admission to the Soviet Union, and took up his residence there.
When Soviet intervention began, he was dispatched to Spain as a radio technician. Early in 1937, a report arrived at the Moscow headquarters of the Ogpu to the effect that Friend was showing "Trotskyist sympathies."

True, he had associated with Socialists and other radicals, which was only natural for a young Englishman unaware of the invisible Chinese Wall segregating the Soviet personnel from the Spaniards.
Later I asked one of the Ogpu officials in Moscow about him, and was answered evasively. On further inquiry I learned that Friend had been brought home as a prisoner to Odessa. I was told of the trick by which he had been taken. The Ogpu in Spain had lured him on to a Soviet vessel, pretending that he was needed to repair the ship's radio transmitter. Friend had no suspicion that the Ogpu was after him. Once on board, he was seized. On April 12, he was put in the dungeons of the Ogpu in Moscow. To this day, his brother in Leningrad and his family in
