Andy Miller:
BTW "The World Wonders" was not part of Nimitz's message it was the
"pad", a random phrase put on the end of the message to confuse any
Japanese cryptologist trying to break the code.

Now for the trivia contest. What was the pad on the front of that
famous message?
"Where is the third fleet?", which was obviously a reference to the
third group of Santa Fe 50' frozen food reefers scheduled to traverse
Sherman Hill that November.
