How MI5 secretary’s beach snap was planted in Operation Mincemeat to dupe Hitler

Published

on

Wearing a patterned swimsuit as she posed for a happy photo at the riverside, Jean Leigh never dreamed that she would become a central pillar in the plot that helped to fool Adolf Hitler and ultimately defeat Nazi Germany. 

The young woman’s image, which was taken next to the Thames in Oxfordshire, went on to be used in one of the greatest feats of deception in history. 

The codenamed Operation Mincemeat, which was devised by intelligence officers Charles Cholmondeley and Ewen Montagu, used the corpse of an unknown man who was given the identity of a British Army major to fool Hitler into diverting troops away from Sicily ahead of the Allied invasion in 1943. 

The corpse, which is now believed to have belonged to a Welsh homeless man named Glyndwr Michael, was turned into Major William Martin and a briefcase containing fake documents that would dupe the Nazis was attached to his waist before he was dropped into the ocean off the coast of Germany’s ally Spain.

The plotters’ hope that the body would be discovered and the documents read and believed by the Nazis was ultimately a success – Hitler did divert much of his forces to Greece and thousands of Allied lives were saved when they invaded Sicily and met far less resistance than they would otherwise have done.  

To make Martin’s identity believable, his uniform and briefcase contained a selection of personal items, including a photo of his ‘girlfriend’ – MI5 secretary Ms Leigh, who became ‘Pam’. 

In reality, Ms Leigh, who passed away in 2012, had never met the man whom she had been intimately linked to. The photograph was inscribed with the words ‘Till death do us part. Your loving Pam’.

A series of wartime government papers that have been digitised for the first time by the Imperial War Museum and which were kept by Montagu without permission, reveal the intricate details of Cholomondeley and Montagu’s plot.   

One – detailing the arrival of a ‘400lbs package’ – references the delivery of Martin’s corpse to HMS Seraph, the submarine on which the body was taken from Scotland to Spain.

Although extremely heavy for a corpse, the weight likely included the cannister that the body was sealed in to preserve it for its journey before it was dropped into the ocean. Extra weight would have been added by the uniform and flight equipment.  

On Friday, new film Operation Mincemeat, which stars Colin Firth as Montagu and Matthew Macfadyen as Cholmondeley and tells the full story of the successful deception, is released in UK cinemas.

Operation Mincemeat, which first inspired the 1950s film The Man Who Never Was, was devised in the spring of 1943 by Cholmondeley, who worked for MI5, and Montagu, of Naval Intelligence. 

Churchill was by then planning to invade Germany’s ally Italy through the island of Sicily. But a ruse was needed to make the Germans think the attack was taking place elsewhere.

The idea of using a body planted with false papers had initially been put forward in a memo circulated by Rear Admiral John Godfrey, the Director of British Naval Intelligence, shortly after the outbreak of war in 1939. 

What became known as the ‘Trout Memo’ – because it compared tricking Hitler to fishing – put forward what was described as the ‘not very nice’ suggestion that a corpse could be dressed to look like a soldier and planted with documents, before being dropped in the ocean near enemy positions. 

While Godfrey’s name was on the memo, many believe his deputy – Ian Fleming, later author of the James Bond novels – contributed a large part of the work. 

The idea had been used by both Allied and Axis powers in the First World War to trick the other side about future attacks so that troops could be diverted. 

Godfrey’s plan was initially dismissed as ‘unworkable’ but was then revisited in 1942 at the suggestion of Cholmondeley when the invasion of Sicily was being prepared.

Although he was told the plan was too complex, Cholmondeley was encouraged to develop it with Montagu. 

The pair consulted with pathologists about the type of corpse that would be needed and were then given the go-ahead in February 1943. 

Major Martin's identity card, which was placed on his body before it was put into the ocean off the coast of Spain, showed a photo of another soldier - Captain Ronnie Reed - who was deemed to look like him

Two theories then outline how they got the corpse that was used. 

One put forward by author Ben Macintyre, whose bestelling book tells the story of the operation, believes Welshman Glyndwr was chosen after he died at St Pancras Hospital in London in January 1943.

Glyndwr fitted the bill because his cause of death – the ingestion of rat poison – would have been difficult to identify with an autopsy. It meant that spies would be able to make it appear as though the man had died in a plane crash at sea.

The Welshman also had no living relatives, meaning both that his identity could not be accidentally revealed and also that permission was not needed to use his corpse.  

Spanish researchers Jesus Ramírez and Enrique Nielsen instead believe that the body was that of a British sailor who died when HMS Dasher sunk off the coast of Scotland in March 1943.

Once the corpse had been obtained, the idea was to drop it off the coast of Spain near Huelva, where the corpse – named as Major Martin – is located. 

There, it was hoped it would be picked up by the Spanish, who were nominally neutral but known to be assisting the Nazis in intelligence gathering. 

Spain had been chosen because the British team had been told that Spanish doctors were unlikely to carry out a thorough autopsy. This was partly because Spain’s dominant Roman Catholic faith meant cutting open corpses was only done in extreme circumstances.

The name of Martin was chosen because there were several other officers with the same surname and similar rank in the Royal Marines – the branch of the military that was chosen for the corps. 

Martin’s pockets were also filled with the personal effects that made his identify convincing. His ID photograph showed another soldier – Captain Ronnie Reed – who was deemed to look like him.

Along with the photo of his ‘girlfriend’ Pam – Ms Leigh – there was also a receipt for an engagement ring, ticket stubs from the theatre, keys, cigarettes and a pencil stub.  

Chained to Martin’s waist was the leather case that contained intelligence documents marked ‘top secret’ which detailed attack plans on Greece and Sardinia instead of Sicily. 

On April 30, the body was sailed to the coast off Huelva by the submarine HMS Seraph and put into the water where the current would carry it to shore.

It was found several hours later by Spanish fishermen and taken into custody by the armed forces, which performed the autopsy.

The case was taken to Madrid and opened under pressure from Nazi agents. Its contents were then taken out and photographed before the case was handed back to the British – who had been requesting its return. 

When they inspected the case, the British suspected the letters had been opened because they had planted an eyelash inside one of them and it was missing. 

German communications that were deciphered at Bletchley Park in May then confirmed that the intelligence had reached the Nazi high command and had been ‘swallowed rod, line and sinker’. 

Hitler moved thousands of troops away from Sicily to counter the Allied offensive that he believed would be targeted elsewhere.

Even when Sicily was attacked, Hitler still delayed sending troops back because he thought the operation was a diversion for the real focus of hostilities.     

Though more than 5,000 Allied troops – mostly British and America – died invading Sicily, some 9,000 Nazi and Italian soldiers also lost their lives with some 117,000 captured or missing.

It is thought that Operation Mincemeat saved thousands of Allied lives in the invasion, and paved the way for the Italian Campaign that followed.

Ms Leigh’s was working in the War Office as a secretary when Montagu asked female staff to submit personal photographs for a top secret project. 

The photo of her in Oxfordshire had been taken by her Guardsman boyfriend. She had put the image in a drawer and forgotten about it before the appeal.

Speaking years later, she said of her role as the fictitious girlfriend: ‘He was Willie, I was Pam. We went to clubs, films and dinner – always keeping the ticket stubs.’ 

Speaking to the Daily Mail in 1956 after the release of the film The Man Who Never Was – which was the first on-screen depiction of Operation Mincemeat – Ms Leslie said: ‘I was working in the War Office in 1942 when Commander Montagu asked several of us if we had any pictures of ourselves. 

‘I was the girl who went with Commander Montagu to the theatre on the other half of the stubs of tickets that were found on Major Martin.

‘I think we girls at the War Office knew how to keep secrets. But when people at parties wonder if Operation Mincemeat was genuine, it’s an awful temptation to tell.’

Another reveals some of the letters sent between British officials in the knowledge that they would be intercepted by the Germans. One – a letter to Montagu from the British Embassy in Madrid – details contact with Martin’s fake father and fiancee.

A third document references once again the package that was delivered to HMS Seraph and which was described as ‘optical instruments’. 

Curator Robert Rumble told MailOnline: ‘The aim of Operation Mincemeat was a spectacular disinformation strategy to cover for the planned Allied invasion of Sicily in 1943. 

‘The documents are the essence of the operation. It was using respective bureaucracies of both the British, Spanish and Germans to play up on the fears that Hitler himself had that the British would target the Greece and the Balkans in order to link up with a Soviet advance.

Monkeypox hits Europe: Portugal says five men have virus while Spain probes eight suspected cases

Published

on

Monkeypox has now been spotted in Portugal and Spain, in what could be the first global outbreak of the rare disease.

Spain is monitoring eight men who it believes are infected, with tests being carried out to confirm they have the virus.

All of the men are gay or bisexual, according to local media, and most were detected at STI clinics in Madrid.

Five men in Portugal have also tested positive and at least 15 more cases are being investigated, health officials there said today.

These cases are all male and mostly ‘young’ — but it is not yet clear how they caught the virus.

Until now, monkeypox cases were confined to travellers and their relatives returning from western and central Africa, where the virus is endemic.

But experts now fear it is spreading more widely for the first time, after seven Britons were diagnosed in the past fortnight. 

Six of them appear to have been infected in the UK and the majority are not linked, which suggests more cases are going undetected. Health chiefs are scrambling to find the source of the cases.

Four of the British patients are gay or bisexual men, and officials say the pattern of transmission is ‘highly suggestive of spread in sexual networks’.

Dr Simon Clarke, a microbiologist at the University of Reading, told MailOnline he suspects UK case numbers are already ‘in the tens’.

But he insisted the disease will not spread like Covid, adding: ‘I would be surprised if we ever got to more than 100 cases [in Britain]’.

Monkeypox is a rare viral infection which causes unusual rashes or lesions (shown in a handout provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the US

Seven Britons have been diagnosed with monkeypox and six of them appear to have contracted it in the UK — in a sign the virus is spreading in the community. The seventh UK patient had brought the virus back from Nigeria, where the disease is widespread. At least three patients are receiving care at specialist NHS units in London and Newcastle

US monitors six people who shared flight with UK monkeypox ‘patient zero’

Officials in the US are keeping tabs on six people who were in close contact with a UK monkeypox case.

The Americans were on the same flight as the patient who travelled from Nigeria to the Britain on May 4, and became the first case of the virus there.

The potential US cases sat within a three-row radius of his seat, according to Jennifer McQuiston, a senior CDC official.

She told STAT News the Americans will be monitored for 21 days.

McQuiston also warned that Britain’s current spate of cases could be the tip of the iceberg.

The lack of travel links and connections between UK cases suggest there are ‘unknown chains of transmission happening’, she said.

‘You have two clusters that have no link to travel or to other people who are known to be associated with a recognized outbreak.

‘It suggests that there are unknown chains of transmission happening.

‘If there appears to be unknown chains of transmission, it just puts us on alert to be thinking: Could this be spreading outside the UK?’

Regions across Spain have been put on alert following the announcement of eight suspected cases in Madrid.

Confirmation is still awaited from the National Centre for Microbiology but health chiefs say ‘great care must be taken.’

The country’s top public health doctor, Fernando Simón, said ‘it is not likely that monkeypox will generate a significant transmission but it cannot be ruled out’.

The Spanish health alert system has called on communities to notify public health services ‘urgently’ of patients with symptoms. 

He said it was now necessary to take extreme surveillance measures and investigate all the hypotheses about the routes of contagion.

Mr Simon was talking to the media in Valencia during the I International Summit on Pandemic Management.

Spanish newspaper El Pais says it has had access to health papers and that the health leaders have confirmed the investigation.

It claims most of the cases were detected at the Sandoval Health Centre in the capital, an STI clinic.

The Spanish broadcaster RTVE said all eight of the patients were men who had homosexual relationships.

Meanwhile, the suspected cases in Portugal were all detected in the Lisbon and Tagus Valley region.

The men are said to be ‘stable’ and all suffering from ‘ulcerative lesions’, one of the tell-tale signs of the virus.

Portugal’s health ministry has issued a warning urging people with lesions and rashes to see a doctor.

When these symptoms appear, ‘direct physical contact’ should be avoided, officials added.

Until now monkeypox had only ever been detected in four countries outside of Africa — the UK, US, Israel and Singapore.

All of the cases had travel links back to Nigeria and Ghana.

Infections are more common in central and western Africa, where they can result from direct contact with infected animals.

Health experts investigating the new monkeypox outbreak in Britain believe the virus may be spreading sexually between people for the first time.

It was thought that monkeypox could only be passed on through close contact with the likes of body fluids, respiratory droplets and lesions.

Nurses and doctors are being advised to stay 'alert' to patients who present with a new rash or scabby lesions (like above)

But an expert from the UK Health Security Agency said the latest UK cases ‘appear to have acquired the infection via sexual contact’.

Dr Mateo Prochazka, who leads the UKHSA team which is investigating monkeypox, described this route of transmission as ‘novel’.

Seven people have been diagnosed with the virus in England over the past two weeks, five of which are in London.

STI clinics bring social distancing BACK ‘as patients with monkeypox rash mistake it for syphilis’ 

Sexual health clinics have reintroduced social distancing amid fears about a spate of monkeypox cases in the UK.

At least one practice in West London had already brought in stricter infection control measures yesterday, before the total number of British cases rose to seven.

Patients were told to keep a one-metre distance in the waiting room and were asked if they had any unusual bumps or rashes prior to each appointment.

Monkeypox can be mistaken for syphilis or other common rash illnesses, making it difficult to diagnose early. 

A health source told MailOnline the stricter measures were not part of new national guidance but they could not rule out some NHS boards ‘putting in measures locally’. 

UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) bosses have now written to regional NHS teams telling them to stock up on PPE and be on alert for patients with a new rash.

Four are gay or bisexual men and only one has recent travel links to a country where the virus is endemic, which is ‘highly suggestive’ of spread in ‘sexual networks’, Dr Prochazka added.

Writing on Twitter, he said: ‘Transmission is not easy but can happen person to person from direct contact with lesions, or respiratory secretions.

‘The closer and longer the contact, the more likely it is to transmit.

‘Close contact between two people (such as during sex) could also facilitate transmission – but this has never been described before.

‘However, the high proportion of cases in the current outbreak in England that are gay or bisexual (4/7, 57%) is highly suggestive of spread in sexual networks.

‘This is further suggested by the fact that common contacts have been identified for only 2 of the 4 latest cases.’ Dr Prochazka continued: ‘Finding monkeypox cases that do not have travel links is rare, and suggestive of importation followed by some extent of community transmission.

‘This situation is being rapidly assessed.

‘What is even more bizarre is finding cases that appear to have acquired the infection via sexual contact – this is a novel route of transmission that will have implications for outbreak response and control.’ 

Sexual health services are now working to identify more cases, control its spread and tackle potential stigma.

Other experts said further research is necessary before it will be possible to conclude if the virus is sexually transmissible.

Other infections that are not technically STIs but can spread during sex include shigella.

Monkeypox can kill up to one in ten people who get it but the new cases have the West African variant, which is deadly for around one in 100.

Initial symptoms include fever, headache, muscle aches, backache, swollen lymph nodes, chills and exhaustion.

A rash can develop, often beginning on the face, then spreading to other parts of the body including the genitals.

The rash changes and goes through different stages, and can look like chickenpox or syphilis, before finally forming a scab, which later falls off.

EVERYTHING you need to know about monkeypox: Strain spreading in UK ‘transmits through sex’ and is about as deadly as the Wuhan Covid variant — but UK doesn’t have a vaccine

What is monkeypox?

Advertisement

Monkeypox is a rare viral infection which people usually pick up in the tropical areas of west and central Africa.

It is usually spread through direct contact with animals such as squirrels, which are known to harbour the virus.

However, it can also be transmitted through very close contact with an infected person. 

Monkeypox was first discovered when an outbreak of a pox-like disease occurred in monkeys kept for research in 1958.

The first human case was recorded in 1970 in the Democratic Republic of Congo and the infection has been reported in a number of central and western African countries since then.

Advertisement

Only a handful of cases have been reported outside of Africa and they are normally confined to people with travel links to the continent.

How deadly is it?

Monkeypox is usually mild, with most patients recovering within a few weeks without treatment. Yet, the disease can prove fatal.

Monkeypox kills up to 10 per cent of people it infects.

However, with milder strains the fatality rate is closer to one in 100 — similar to when Covid first hit.

Advertisement

The UK cases all had the West African strain of the virus, which is mild compared to the Central African strain. 

Is there a cure?

There are no specific treatments available for monkeypox infection.

However, because monkeypox virus is closely related to the virus that causes smallpox, jabs for smallpox can also protect people from getting monkeypox.

One vaccine, Jynneos, also known as Imvamune or Imvanex, has been licensed in the US to prevent monkeypox, but it’s not approved in the UK.

Advertisement

The vaccine was shown to be around 85 per cent effective in preventing monkeypox.

Antivirals and pooled blood from individuals vaccinated against smallpox can be used to treat severe cases.

What is the situation with the current UK outbreak?

Seven cases of monkeypox have been confirmed in the UK between May 6 and 15. 

Six of the infected Brits had not recently travelled abroad, suggesting there is transmission between people in the UK for the first time.

Some of the cases are believed to have caught the virus through sex — which health experts have described as ‘bizarre’.

Monkeypox was not thought to spread via sexual intercourse but through close contact with lesions or respiratory droplets. However, just because it can spread during sex does not mean it is the virus’ primary route of transmission, nor does it make it an STI.

The NHS is tracking down contacts of those infected to identify additional cases, as it is not clear how all of the infected people caught Monkeypox.

Health leaders are also working with international agencies to determine if similar outbreaks are occurring elsewhere. 

What do we know about the British cases so far?

Five are based in London, one in the South East, and one in the North East. 

The first case was confirmed on May 7 in an individual who had recently travelled to Nigeria. 

They received care at the expert infectious disease unit at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust in London.

Two more cases in London were announced on May 14. The infected pair live together in the same household but had not been in contact with the case announced one week earlier.

One of these individuals is receiving care at the expert infectious disease unit at St Mary’s Hospital in London. The other is isolating at home and does not need hospital treatment.

Four more cases were announced on May 16, bringing the UK total to seven.

Two of the cases were in London, with the other two in the North East and South East of England.

The most recent four cases have no known connections with the earlier three cases, but two of them were known to each other.

The four new cases were in gay and bisexual men.
