Mavis Batey, one of Bletchley Park’s leading female Codebreakers, died this week at the age of 92.

Mavis’s work on Enigma was crucial to the Royal Navy’s victory at Matapan in 1941 and the success of the D-Day landings in 1944. She was part of Dilly Knox’s team, working on as-yet unbroken codes and ciphers.

In this Bletchley Park Podcast Extra, we can hear her chatting with Bletchley Park historian and author Michael Smith.

Many thanks to Michael Smith, Matt Rawlinson & The Open University for allowing us to share this with you.
