Subjects covered in this file include the responsibilities of British intelligence organisations worldwide; the participation of neutral countries in the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration (UNRRA); security arrangements for the repatriation of German prisoners of war; the collection of topographical intelligence; the security of cyphers used by British and Allied governments and intelligence services; British relations with Yugoslav resistance organisations; deception plans relating to Operation Overlord; and evidence of German preparations for the use of long-range rockets against the United Kingdom, referred to as “Bodyline” and “Crossbow”.
