history one of the last of a top World War Two codebreaking team at Bletchley Park codebreaker Jerry Roberts dies aged 93, Capt Roberts, from Liphook Hampshire was part of a group that cracked the German High Command's Tunny code at the British codebreaking centre. Their decrypts made it possible to read Hitler's own messages during the war.
This process ended up shortening the war by at least two years!. There was a machine that was used to sent messages in code to where ever they needed to be sent during the war this machine was called “colossus”. Fake codes where sent to the Germany army to distract them from what they were doing so that they could help win the war and our alliances from France who needed to go back to their country and fight for their land back but to do so the code breakers said they were going to a different part of the country so when they were about to attack, the soldiers were not there and we in fact in France getting the war won!.
Where is it? The mansion, Bletchley Park, Sherwood Dr, Bletchley, Milton Keynes is where it is located and it has its own museum because of the great amount of history made there!.
When was it used? Bletchley Park rejoices in the fact that, until fairly recently, it was probably Britain’s best kept secret! And during World War Two was of vital importance to our national security and ultimate victory.
Why was it used? Bletchley park was used as a secure military base in the uk for the army soldiers in the military. Its function was to write codes from messages to send away to other bases in the war.
Colossus! Colossus was one of the main pieces of coding equipment used in the unknown military bases, it was used to write code versions of messages which were to be sent across the regions and other bases so that the Germans didn’t know what was said!.
Who was it used by? was a secret radio intercept station which provided crucial assistance to the Allied war effort!. The early work carried out was conducted in Number 3 Cottage. Number 2 Cottage was occupied by the Budd family from 1940 through until 1949 as Mr Budd was the Quartermaster at the Park and the family lived in Number 2 Cottage during WWII when the work by Alan Turing, Dilly Knox and J. Jeffreys was being carried out in Number 3. But mostly it was used by the people who were stationed there working in the war.
Why were the workers needed there? The workers had to be there because there had to be someone to inspect the equipment and get started on building machines, equipment and even sometimes write the coding that was to be sent away. Also some military workers had to be there to gather information to be sent to the soldiers and to find out what messages had to be sent from the people in charge. the people who worked there were all those who believed to have worked in signals intelligence during World War Two, at Bletchley Park and other locations at war.
