Here are my reports from Bletchley Park, the historic site of secret British codebreaking activities during WWII and birthplace of the modern computer. The first one is a bit of the guide’s lecture on Enigma, the German code machine, so the sound isn’t great but he gives a good history of the device and how it worked. The other two are interviews about their work there. I have to tell you, it’s pretty neat to stand where Churchill stood and to be in the rooms where all this history was made.

Today, we cross the channel and visit the D-Day beaches! TO see what our troops saw as they approached the landing will be truly awe-inspiring. We have 3 of our D-day veterans with us, including our friend Mac Evans, and I’ll speak with him about his feelings on this day. We will also visit where our paratroopers landed in D-Day, like Sainte-Mère-Église. I’ll have reports from the beaches and town as well 🙂

Remember, follow me on SoundCloud as dispatches will appear there first. Thanks!

    Outstanding Field Report from Bletchley Park, Tammy! We’ve seen the documentaries about this facility on History Channel, et al. But your interviews bring this to a personal level. Take care.

    AWSOME POSTS….. My father served in the US Navy during WWII and I am in the process of attempting to locate one of his Navy buddies in order to find out more about what they did, as my father never said much about what his duties were.

    My favorite movie is U-571. Thank you again and safe travels.

    Have always been so proud of the unsung heroes of Bletchley Park since I first heard about it years ago but to hear how these people were held to silence about their achievements and perhaps scorned by friends & family is even more admirable.Thanks Tammy.
