THE LAUNCHING OF THE BODY

The spot selected for floating "Major Martin" ashore was 1,600 yards off the mouth of the Huelva river.

Mysterious
Zero hour was 4.30 in the morning. When the Seraph surfaced again it was dark as pitch. The new moon had set and the ebb tide was just on the turn.
Through the conning tower went the five officers, and the submarine was trimmed down until an inch of the calm sea lapped over the casing. The mysterious canister was hauled aloft.
Only then, with all ratings below, did Lieutenant Jewell let his officers into the secret. Lieutenant Jewell told them that the canister at their feet contained a corpse. The operation, he said, was part of an Allied plan to deceive the enemy into drawing his defensive forces away from the spot selected for the main thrust of the Mediterranean invasion.
Phoney invasion plans were to be "planted" on the enemy through the medium of the body of this man purporting to be "Major Martin," victim of an air crash at sea.
Huelva had been chosen for the "plant" because it was known that the German agent there was being well fed with military intelligence by local collaborators.
