The best bit was that they made no attempts to hide what they were saying, sending coordinates and plans for attack etc. etc. for anyone to openly intercept.  There were over 150 million different possibilities that the code could be and every day at midnight, the code changed again making the allies task even more impossible than it already was. Everyone thought Enigma was unbreakable.  Continue reading

Yesterday a really exciting opportunity arose to get involved in the largest digitisation project The National Archives (TNA) has ever undertaken. If you don’t enjoy history however I wouldn’t bother continuing on with this blog post….. Continue reading
