I have Found The Intelligence Officer Major Ian Macbean!

Soderqvist1: Cos claim this!

An Introduction to L. Ron Hubbard.
For example, among those encountered through the course of his second Asian venture (commencing in 1928, and following a short stint with Montana’s 163rd National Guard), was a Major Ian Macbean of the British Secret Service. Precisely why this Macbean would take a seventeen-year-old L. Ron Hubbard through a tour of British intelligence efforts from Peking through northern China is not known. Nonetheless, and as we shall see, Macbean’s lessons were to serve Ron well. Also through these Asian travels came Ron’s encounter with Cantonese pirates, the engineering of a jungle road across Guam’s denser corner, and the evening he decked an Italian swordsman named Giovinni. (Although not before he took a saber cut across the left cheek, and Macbean nearly lost a hand).

Soderqvist1: George Pendle ‘s strange Angle in his biography on Jack Parsons has documented Hubbard’s skills at fencing when the fencing with parsons got more and more fierce because of betty, and Parsons has even described Hubbard’s expertise with knifes in Bare-Faced Messiah, so that part of the story is fairly established. I found Ian Macbean’s widow Phyllis Bedells on Wikipedia, and her book; “My Dancing Days” on the Archive.org

Soderqvist1: this photography on page 183-184 from 1927, when Major Ian Macbean is leaving England for Peking is an exact match with the picture Cos has on him!

My Dancing Days by Phyllis Bedells
Page 140: while Pat and I were still at the Coliseum Ian received a letter from the Foreign Office asking him if he would go to Peking as a temporary Cypher Officer. After my class at Albemarle Street we lunched together. It was a rather a special lunch, as I wanted Ian to ‘feel good’. Afterwards he went off to the foreign Office, and I to my matinee at the Coliseum. I was almost ready for my entrance when he came into my dressing-room, his eyes shining with excitement. ‘well, darling?’ I asked him. ‘What’s the news?’ ‘I start to work at the Foreign Office tomorrow morning and I’m off to Peking on Wednesday. The job seemed to hold many attractions for him. Page 142: Ian’s frequent letters from Peking told how happy he was in his new work. With another man, he shared a pleasant house in the British Legation. They had several Chinese servants; and Ian’s life seemed an enjoyable one, with amusing parties to go to as well as the more official function which he had to attend.

Soderqvist1: The account above has convinced me that Major Ian Macbean was real, and was known by L. Ron Hubbard, but it doesn’t prove their alleged relationship, but a thought provoking question emerges from the tale, namely; Major Ian Macbean seems to have been an ordinary British intelligence Officer, even pretty unknown as such. With that in mind; if Hubbard had no kind of relationship with him how could Hubbard knows that when he was in Peking, Macbean was there too?

Soderqvist1: Not much of the above story can be substantiated for the moment, but Major Ian Macbean was trained in fencing so much is truth. if he was involved in a fierce fencing with a swordsman called Giovanni is uncertain, but “bloody boxing” on the ship, indicates that he had courage for it!
My Dancing Days
Page 85: He had also Boxed and fenced for the army before the war.
Page 117: It was thrilling to be on board the troopship. I have never been out of England before. A boxing ring had been fixed up for the troops. At first I hated to see the men fight, but after a while, when I had grown used to the sight of blood, my interest in the sport grew.

As you posted on the other forum, Peter, a copy of Macbean's letter was an exhibit in the Armstrong 1 trial. Here's a scan.

IMO, the information on Major Ian MacBean raises more questions than it answers. On a side note, the topic of dueling gets into the subject of the dueling societies of older times and their customs. Many dueling scars were purposely inflicted to leave a mark without the dangers of actually having to duel. This image from The Burns Archive shows a dueling society event where such scarring was done.
