“Bletchley Park”  by Valerie Young 


The talk  covered her memories of growing up in Bletchley during the 1950's, her family’s background, and Bletchley Park before the war. It mentioned the railway station that served the Park, and includes a video of her mother  speaking about working there from 1943.

The link with Radar was revealed, and other secret houses. The threat from the German intelligence system, the response by voluntary interceptors and the Y stations. Other code breakers, early computers and computers after the war. There were  a number of artefacts on display.
