Operation Envy

This was a British unrealised deception plan based on the abandonment of a glider, carrying false documents and equipment, on a sandbank of the Irrawaddy river, near Prome, in Burma (March/April 1944).

The object of the undertaking, which was cancelled, was to persuade the Japanese that the British had created a sizeable airborne force, and that this was to made an assault in the area bounded by Prome, Taungup and Sandoway.
