Recently disclosed diary entries belonging to a senior member of the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) has revealed that during the First World War it experimented with using semen as an invisible ink to write top-secret letters.

The name of the mastermind behind this ingenious plan? Mansfield Cumming.
