Ernest Holloway Oldham (September 10, 1894 – September 29, 1933) was a British traitor, employed as a cipher clerk in the British Foreign Office. He spied for the Soviet Union between 1929 and his death in 1933, in return for money. His job gave him access to highly sensitive communications between Britain and her foreign embassies, and the material he passed to his handler Dmitri Bystrolyotov was highly regarded in Moscow. He had no apparent ideological interest in helping the Soviet Union (unlike the more famous Cambridge spies), but was driven by the large amounts of money paid to him to betray his country. By 1933, the pressures of his activities had led to his sacking from the Foreign Office, alcoholism, domestic violence and ultimately suicide.

  • Эрнест Холлоуэй Олдхем (англ. Ernest Holloway Oldham, 10 сентября 1894 — 29 сентября 1933) — шифровальщик Управления связи Министерства иностранных дел Великобритании, агент советской разведки. В 1929 году принёс в советское посольство в Париже и предложил купить английский дипломатический шифр. Сотрудник ОГПУ Владимир Войнович, представившись майором Владимиром, скопировал шифр, но обвинил Эрнеста в мошенничестве и выгнал. Только в 1930 году нелегал ОГПУ в Голландии Ганс Галлени (Дмитрий Быстролетов) смог найти Олдхема в Лондоне и передать ему конверт с деньгами. Я сожалею, что мы не встретились в Париже. Я знаю о серьёзной ошибке, совершённой майором Владимиром. Он отстранён от работы и наказан. Я пришёл, чтобы отдать вам то, что по праву вам принадлежит. Впоследствии Ганс смог уговорить Эрнеста продолжить сотрудничество. Олдхем был найден в бессознательном состоянии на полу кухни своего дома и скончался по пути в больницу. Расследование показало, что это было самоубийство — отравление угарным газом — сделанное в ненормальном психическом состоянии.

He spied for the Soviet Union between 1929 and his death in 1933, in return for money.

By 1933, the pressures of his activities had led to his sacking from the Foreign Office, alcoholism, domestic violence and ultimately suicide. Despite hints to there being a spy within the Foreign Office by Soviet defectors Grigory Besedovsky (in October 1929) and Georges Agabekov (in June 1930), Oldham's espionage was only partly suspected by his employers during the last months of Oldham's life, when MI5 began their investigation and surveillance. His activities were uncovered in 1940 when Oldham was identified by the Soviet defector Walter Krivitsky during his interrogations with MI5.
