The Work at Bletchley Park - The Work at Bletchley Park "You never discussed your work with anyone", from this we can gather that what went on at Bletchley Park was private, and was not ever meant to go out to the public. "I hadn't a clue what was going on in the rest of the park", we can see that even though everybody was there, presumably for the same reason, they weren't even allowed to discuss it within the larger scale ground. People kept to their huts, and were only allowed to discuss it with "anyone except your little group that worked with you"....   [tags: Papers] 1123 words
