Thomas Argyll Robertson OBE (27 October 1909 – 10 May 1994), known as "Tommy" or by his initials as "TAR", was a Scottish MI5 intelligence officer responsible during the Second World War for the "Double-Cross" ("XX") disinformation campaign against the German intelligence services. Every German agent in Britain, with the exception of one who committed suicide without having been detected by the authorities, was actually working for British intelligence. Included in this was Operation Mincemeat. The disinformation campaign was successful in persuading the Germans that the invasions of Sicily (1943) and Normandy (1944) were going to occur elsewhere.

He died 10 May 1994 aged 84.
