(Untitled), 12 Apr 1944

Reference Code: GBR/0014/CHAR 20/161/107-108

Scope and Contents

Copy of a telegram from WSC to [Philip] Broad [1st Secretary, Foreign Secretary] marked "personal and most secret" in which he says that he intends to advise King Peter of Yugoslavia [later Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia, and Slovenia] to dismiss the Puric government and to form a small administration of people "not particularly obnoxious to Tito", which will deprive [Draza] Mihailovich [leader of the Chetniks] of his position as War Minister. WSC says that King Peter will not come back immediately and that WSC will have a better chance of improving relations with Tito. He notes that S.I.M.E [Security Intelligence Middle East] would be responsible for the King's safety if he did need to return to Egypt and suggests that they should therefore insinuate agents among senior Yugoslav officers. Carbon typescript signed with initials.
