A file of correspondence concerning an operation of an undisclosed nature in neutral Sweden in the spring of 1940. The file includes letters describing permission being given for the operation by Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain; the failure of the first attempt; the eventual abandonment because of the fear that it would incite pro-German feeling in Sweden and jeopardise planned sabotage operations in Germany; arrangements for the funding of the operation; and requests to the British legation in Sweden to hire six pilots with knowledge of the Norwegian coastline.
