Colonel Meinertzhagen dropped his haversack in full sight of the enemy

Active selection:    
The Wallet That Won a War. In July 1917, General Allenby's intelligence officers conceived a daring plan to persuade Turkish troops that they were to attack Gaza when the target was actually elsewhere. The bait was a haversack full of false papers that was to be dropped by Colonel Meinertzhagen in full sight of the enemy. Original artwork from Look and Learn no. 502 (28 August 1971).
