The Dreadnought Hoax, report in The Sketch

Page from The Sketch magazine reporting on the Dreadnought hoax. The incident was a joke played by a group led by Horace de Vere Cole, including the writer Virginia Stephen (Woolf, seen far left in the bottom picture) who dressed up as the Emperor of Abyssinia and his party, and turned up out of the blue to inspect the battleship Dreadnought'. The group were received with the usual courtesies accorded to distinguished visitors, and were shown over the vessel. The Dreadnought hoax was not the first time this group had played the joke. The top photograph shows the Abyssinian princes on an occasion when they visited the Mayor of Cambridge as the Sultan of Zanzibar and his suite. Date: 1910

Operation Mincemeat - possessions of Major Martin

Personal possessions of Major William Martin, found when his body was washed ashore in Spain on 30th April 1943 carrying sensitive documents, an elaborate and successful deception by British forces in World War Two (codenamed Operation Mincemeat) to convince German high command that the Allies were planning to attack Greece and Sardinia in 1943 rather than Sicily, the actual objective. Major Martin never in fact existed and his body was that of Glyndwr Michael, a homeless man who had died in January 1943. Among his personal possessions are a watch, Player's cigarettes, matches, keys, wallet and a leather-covered chain which British intelligence used to attach the briefcase containing the false documents to the body. Date: 1943
