I dont think anyone took it seriously, but they could see the comic potential in making it look like a completely serious document.

There was another suggestion for transmission of information that absolutely had to be delivered no matter what. I think it involved a fleet of tanks with 1's and 0's painted on the sides.

I'm not sure what happened to that one though.


Maybe they are still en route....

What if they get out of order or one gets shot?

Funny you should say that. When I was in the Home Guard (it's true, the HG was re-mustered in about 1954, during the Cold War), we were instructed in methods of transmitting information secretly in enemy occupied territory, with disguised post boxes and the like, one of these involved a householder pinning out washing to dry on the clothes-line, the sequence of white and non-white items spelling out a morse-coded message to the watchers in the hills. I kid you not.

Greying underwear or the wrong soap powder could have led to all kinds of miscommunication.

Its amazing how subtle communications can be. I saw a film where the arm a backpack was worn on decided a man's death.
