This chapter describes the efforts of the Mincemeat team to provide their corpse-courier with a credible professional persona. These include dressing the corpse-courier for his mission; determining the particular rank and specific identity to give him as a member of the Royal Marines; equipping him with the necessary official documentation to ‘confirm’ its authenticity; and accounting for his being singled out to carry the Mincemeat letter from England to North Africa.
