"OPERATION MINCEMEAT"

came to the Flag Officer, Submarines Headquarters, where he and I could talk over the whole matter.
I gave him the "operation orders," which were as follows:

OPERATION MINCEMEAT
1. Object
To cause a briefcase containing documents to drift ashore as near as possible to xuELVA in Spain in such circumstances that it will be thought to have been washed ashore from an aircraft which crashed at sea when the case was being taken by an officer from the U.K, to Allied Forces H.Q, in North Africa.
2. Method
A dead body dressed in the battle-dress uniform of a Major, Royal Marines, and wearing a"Mae West," will be taken out in a submarine, together with the briefcase and a rubber dinghy.
The body will be packed fully clothed and ready (and wrapped in a blanket to prevent friction) in a tubular airtight container (which will be labelled as "Optical Instruments").
The container is just under 6 feet 6 inches long and just under 2 feet in diameter and has no excrescences of any kind on the sides. The end which opens has a flush-fitting lid which is held tightly in position by a number of nuts and has fitted on its exterior in clips a box-spanner with a permanent tommy-bar which is chained to the lid.
Both ends are fitted with handles which fold down flat. It will be possible to lift the container by using both handles or even by using the handle in the lid alone, but it would be better not to take the whole weight on the handle at the other end, as the steel of which the container is made is of light gauge to keep the weight as low
