the secret is the bannana silly, you put in a German Issue Super Secret Bannana, and at the other end the contact decodes it using his Super Secret Message Blender, and gets a very informative and refreshing Super Secret Drink

Reminds me of that interesting question on QI where the AA was used to warn the Prime Minister of Soviet attacks.

its a skill, as for the photos, yes it could have done with a few more showing it from more angles, dont think he had gone into enough detail with the photos.
