This is possible with transposition ciphers as the letters for each word are distributed throughout the text, whereas in plain text all the letters of a word are together in sequential order. Thus if the corner of a cipher document is torn off and a block of letters missing, there may still be most of the letters of each word available, allowing one to deduce the actual message. However, with plain text if a word is missing there are no components of it in the remaining portion of the document.
The keyword was any agreed word of moderate length such as ‘imprisonment’ or ‘determination’. In most cases, the keywords were no longer known and even if I had the original keyword, I did not know how the cipher was constructed around the key. In my quest to decipher the documents, I started with a search on Google, which did not turn up much of promise. I then talked to a colleague at work who was a reserve officer in the US army, and he made some inquiries of fellow officers who worked in intelligence.
If the keyword were MONARCHY, for example, an equivalent key showing the column order could be DFEAGBCH: MONARCHY DFEAGBCH That is, column four (‘A’ in both cases) would be the first column to be read out of the message array, then column six (‘C’ in MONARCHY, ‘B’ in DFEAGBCH) and so on, retaining the order of the original word. Either of these keys will allow us to read the cipher, but if we deduce that MONARCHY was used, it can give us more insight into the way keys were chosen, and perhaps allow us to guess other keys to try on messages that continue to elude us.
