British Codebreaking during World War II took place at Bletchley Park. This talk explains, in non-technical terms, what the codebreakers faced, and how they went about solving these problems. By the end of the war they were producing high quality Intelligence almost on an industrial scale. After the War a veil of secrecy was drawn over their work and it was not until the late 1980s that their story began to come out.
Brigadier Tim Pulverman had a full career in the Army with the Royal Engineers, and was fortunate to spend nearly half his service abroad. He then became Bursar of Stowe School, the highlights being negotiating the handover of the grounds to the National Trust. He then became Property Manager of Cliveden for the National Trust. On retirement he became a volunteer at Bletchley Park, a role he continues to this day.
