we called the "vital letter" we had to consider the "man" who was going to carry it, for it was obvious that the first question that our opponent in Berlin would ask was: "How did the letter come to be at Huelva?" True, it was the sort of letter which would be carried by an officer, and not in an official bag; nevertheless, the German Intelligence officer would ask: "Was it carried by an officer? Did he seem to be a genuine officer?"
So we had to establish, as a first step, that the body was that of an officer. He had no uniform that we could use, as, for reasons both of security and of keeping my promise to conceal his identity, it was essential that we should provide him with a fresh uniform.
We had taken it for granted that, in his new personality, the body should be that of an Army officer; this had, I think, followed in our minds from the fact that he was carrying a letter from the V.C.LG.S. to the Commander-in-Chief of an army, and probably also from the fact that the wartime Army was so large.
