A fascinating cache of letters have come to light which suggest James Bond creator Ian Fleming had a fascination with transvestites.<br />
<br />
Fleming wrote regularly to Antony Terry, a European correspondent, in the 1950s.<br />
<br />
Terry, who was based behind the Iron Curtain in Cold War Berlin, discusses the German city's transvestite scene in several letters.<br />
<br />
He seems to have been given instructions by Fleming to write stories about and photograph the cross-dressing community.
