Long-classified documents reveal that JRR Tolkien trained as a British spy. Shortly before the outreak of the Second World War, Tolkien and a number of other academics were contacted by the top-secret Government Code and Cypher School.

With his genius for linguistics and knowledge of many languages, Tolkien was a logical choice for either translation or code-breaking. In fact, he had studied cyphers as part of his training as a signals officer during World War I.

Not surpisingly, he passed the Government Code and Cypher school's entrance exams and was offered a job. Though notes indicate that he was "keen" about the work, he did not sign on for reasons that are not known.

Or perhaps he did enlist, but his work was so secret that it is still classified...
