Saving Bletchley Park

Read a blog post from Jason Gorman - Blogging For Bletchley and thought it was worth a mention on my blog.

Lee Copeland has his 9 Forgettings talk, one of those is not to forget our beginnings and another is to to honour each other. As Jason mentions in his post, Bletchley did two important things

1.Some very clever people cracked the German Enigma code, which allowed the allies to intercept vital information and even spread vital disinformation that led directly to victory in World War II.

2.The same very clever people did this by inventing the world's first electronic computer

So no problem at all for me bring Saving Bletchley Park to your attention - and to encourage any readers to visit the site and mention it on their blogs.
