Abstract This paper provides a wider perspective on New Zealand author John Mulgan’s wartime experiences with Special Operations Executive (SOE) in Greece. Specifically, it focuses more deeply on the political and international relations dimensions than do previous studies. In doing so, it also reveals the interest of Peter Fraser’s Labour government in Mulgan’s assessment of the political situation in Greece. The specifics of that encounter between the soldier long absent from New Zealand and the Wellington administration provide a reassessment of New Zealand’s attitude toward Anglo-Greek policy in late 1944 and early 1945. The investigation into Mulgan’s death in Cairo also provides a litmus test of the extent of Dominion independence at the time.
