THE VITAL DOCUMENT

Fortunately, after a while, Sir Archibald Nye himself got really intrigued; he tried a letter, based on my draft, which he suggested might do. It had to be pointed out that, although it indicated the cover targets in just the right sort of way, it would be wholly unconvincing; it was the sort of straightforward letter which could and would go in an official bag and would never be given to an officer to carry in his pocket. This was a challenge to which Sir Archibald rose wonderfully, and he produced a truly magnificent letter. To help the deception, in case the Germans heard of "Husky" (the real code name for the invasion of Sicily), he used that as the code name for the eastern operation against Greece, and used "Brimstone," a fake code name, for the western operation against Sardinia. His draft ran as follows:

Telephone: Whitehall 9400.
Chief of the Imperial
General Staff.

War Office, Whitehall,
London, S.W.i.
23rd April, 1943.

Personal and Most Secret MY DEAR ALEX,

I am taking advantage of sending you a personal letter by hand of one of Mountbatten's officers, to give you the inside history of our recent exchange of cables about Mediterranean operations and their attendant cover plans. You may have felt our decisions were somewhat arbitrary, but I can assure you in fact that the C.O.S. Committee,(1) gave the most careful consideration both to your recommendation and also to Jumbo's.(2)

1 Chiefs of Staff Committee.
2 Nickname of Field-Marshal Sir Henry Wilson, Commander-in-Chief, Middle East.
