Bletchley Park

On 11th March the club and guests had a presentation by Neil Haydon on Bletchley Park; the top-secret home of Britain’s World War Two Codebreakers.

Neil outlined how Bletchley Park came to be set up and its work during World War 2 including breaking the German Military’s Enigma machine codes early in the war. He also explained how codebreakers were able to break the even more complex Lorenz machine later in the war and how all these successes probably shortened WW2 by 2 years and saved millions of lives.
