So we arranged for a container to be made of two skins of 22-gauge sheet steel welded together, with asbestos wool between the skins; at the top there was a similar lid which was bedded on to an airtight rubber gasket by sixteen nuts; a box-spanner was chained to the lid, to which it was clipped when not in use; a lifting handle was provided at each end, for it would weigh over 400 lb. with the body inside.
To complete the account of this part of our preparations, I should record that later on I saw Admiral Barry again and told him that the plan was going ahead and that, if we got final approval, we would want the operation carried out at about the end of April. This would also have the advantage from the submarine's point of view of there being little or no moon, so as to render detection close inshore less likely. He decided that H.M. Submarine Seraph might be used, as she could delay her departure for Malta by a fortnight, spending the time "working up" in home waters. The chance of using Seraph was fortunate, as she was commanded by Lieutenant Jewell, and he and his ship's company had already had experience of special operations in connection with the North Africa landings; they had picked up General Giraud on. his escape from captivity and it was they who had put General Mark Clark ashore on the coast of North Africa when he made secret contact with the French, and then taken him off again.
I had prepared tentative "operation orders" for the Captain of the submarine, and these Admiral Barry approved; but, at his suggestion, Lieutenant Jewell
