MESSAGES PERSONNEL

Acommunications system employed during World War II to send messages to recipients in enemy-occupied territory. Broadcast by the BBC on the regular news bulletins,  the messages appeared innocuous, but contained a hidden meaning for the intended addressee. As well as providing a clandestine channel to individuals not in two-way wireless contact with the Allies,  the system allowed agents to verify identities.
