Lt.Col. Guy Percy Wyndham CB MVO (19 January 1865 – 17 April 1941) was a British Army soldier.

Wyndham was born on 19 January 1865 as the son of Hon. Percy Wyndham and Madeline Caroline Frances Eden Campbell. He was married twice, first in 1892 to Edwina Johanna Fitzpatrick (who died in 1919), then in 1923 to Violet Leverson, daughter and biographer of writer Ada Leverson.

As British military attaché in St. Petersburg, Russia, in 1909 he first warned his Austrian counterpart that an Austrian General Staff officer was supplying top secret information to the Russians. This information, however, ended up on the desk of Alfred Redl, head of counter-intelligence at the Evidenzbureau in Vienna, who unfortunately was the very spy being sought.

Wyndham later attained the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel in the service of the 16th The Queen's Lancers.

Guy Percy Wyndham was a member of The Souls.
