Visited Bletchley Park yesterday. This was the place where in the second world war the encrypted messages from the germans were decrypted. On the picture, an enigma machine used by the germans to encrypt messages. It’s fascinating to see how these machines worked. Also there’s a working “Turing Bombe” machine, used determine the position of the wheels from the enigma that had encrypted the message that was going to be decrypted. Really very interesting to see this in action.On our way back from Bletchley Park to Henley on Thames, we passed Bridego bridge. This is where 54 years ago in 1963 the great train robbery took place. Of course a Geocache was found on the spot, so that’s now logged. Today we’re going to visit Reading.
