Fabulous Saving Bletchley Park WCIT IT Livery business lunchย 

I had a really wonderful time yesterday delivering a speech to the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists at their monthly business lunch on board HMS Wellington on the Thames ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘

โ€‹โ€‹
I was so well looked after my the Beadle, the Master, the clerk and everyone else, it was an absolutely superb lunch. 


We all retired to a local pub afterwards and the conversations about the IT industry, technology, Bletchley Park and our incredible UK tech history continued until the evening.

Sydney Ambury – Royal Northumberland Fusilliers – WW1 and WW2 military serviceย 

I’ve found this letter about my great grandfather Sydney Ambury’s (1885-1944) army service record and his obituary. 

 I’d love to understand more about what he did and what it meant. If you can help at all please comment below. 

  

I only discovered a few years ago that Sydney was born Solomon Benjamin Hamburg in Spitalfields the 8th child of Dutch Jewish parents Benjamin Hamburg and Flora Salomon Rina. Previous to then I and the rest of my family had no idea that he was Jewish or that he came from London. 

At 17 Sydney enlisted in the army in Hounslow and at 18 started serving in the British Army in Newcastle. 

I would love to know anything that anyone can shed light on in terms of my family history and his military service. 

Thanks for any information you can share ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘
