In this final highlight from last year’s sell-out day of talks, Codebreakers’ Legacy, Dr. Joel Greenberg talks about the vitally important work of another lesser known figure from GC&CS, Gordon Welchman.

Welchman designed changes to Alan Turing’s Bombe Machine which was used throughout the war to find the daily settings for Enigma. He also drew up the organisational plan for Bletchley Park which ultimately would enable it to become a “Codebreaking Factory”.

Joel is a Guide & Historian at Bletchley Park & undertook with the support of the Welchman family to write his biography; Gordon Welchman Bletchley Park's Architect of Ultra Intelligence which are available to buy at http://www.bletchleypark.org.uk/shop/p.rhtm/130822/764256-GordonWelchmanBletchleyParksArchitectofUltraIntelligenceJoel_Greenberg.html

If you would like to attend a similar event at Bletchley Park, then please go to http://www.bletchleypark.org.uk/ & look in the What’s On section.

The world's only fully-operational Bombe rebuild can be seen at Bletchley Park.
