8 years ago today was the 70th anniversary Enigma reunion at Bletchley Park.
Here with Maggie is the phenomenal codebreaker Captain Jerry Roberts
RIP, wonderful man and great family friend.
We had an absolutely wonderful day with the hundreds of veterans that came along spending the whole day capturing as much as possible for posterity.
I had started a campaign to save Bletchley Park
the previous year in July 2008 and met quite a few veterans, but this was the first time that I really got to meet hundreds of veterans and hear at first hand so many of their amazing stories.
Here are a few of the interviews conducted that day in 2009.
I chatted to Hannah, giving an overview the day and speaking about the amazing discussions we had all had with the veterans.
Christian Payne interviewed many veterans on the day. Here are just some of his interviews. Enjoy 🙂
