Another famous name to have been at Camp X was Ian Fleming. The remains of the camp still stand at Whitby Ontario, a town about 30 miles east of Toronto. There is one (unproven) theory that Fleming devised the name JAMES BOND from the ST JAMES UNITED CHURCH on Bond Street in Toronto.. The whole story is well documented with many photographs in INSIDE CAMP X by Canadian author Lynn Philip Hodgson.
