Jacques Desoubrie (1922-1949 ) was a French traitor and double agent who worked for the Gestapo during the German occupation of France during World War II.Born in 1922 (some sources say 1921) at Tourcoing, Desoubrie was the illegitimate son of a Belgian doctor. Never having a proper home and abandoned by his mother at an early age, he became a drifter and later took up a trade as an electrician.Desoubrie was described as a short, stocky man with piercing grey eyes set behind a pair of moderately thick-lensed spectacles. He was always smartly dressed, with his light brown hair always neatly combed. His smile revealed bright gold fillings in his front teeth and he spoke excellent English.
