"Code-crackers are now frantically trying to decipher the message". Frantically? Really?

The message is probably unreadable because it's in Banter perhaps if you slowed it down a bit.

The message still may have gotten delivered, as it indicates 'Number of copies sent 2'.

Probably says something like "Finally talked Hess into flying self to England.What a sucker!"

The reason it took so long is that the carrier turkey had to walk from Berlin.

It's descendants only recently discovered the Chunnel.

Daily Fail publishes a story that is not immediately destined for the bottom of a bird cage. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while.

Looks like a one-time pad.

Unless the British kept copies of their pads (which seems unlikely)
I don't think we'll ever know what it says.

More to the point, doing something he was unaware of. Really, all he knew is "fly there, fly there." The fact that a note was stapled to his leg or whatever really has no bearing.
