    The Role of Bletchley Park for the Allies 1. The organisation at Bletchley Park and the way in which its people worked was a key factor to its efficiency and success. It enabled them to decipher and then retransmit the obtained information received from the enemy to intelligence offices in London in the shortest amount of time possible, with complete co-ordination. The recruitment process was concealed. People targeted for recruitment would be taken away secretly and made to sign a form

    The Organisation and Work of the People at Bletchley Park The organisation and work of the people at Bletchley Park was very important this was because in the First World War code-breaking had become more important for the first time because messaging had gone more technical and opposite armies were able to get their hand on messages from the enemy quicker and easier. The British Government wanted to be able to decode all enemy communications so they decided to build a base that would house

    The Work of Bletchley Park Source Based Bletchley Park was kept very separate. You only knew what you and your group were doing, and only the people with the higher ranks knew what was going on in the rest of the park. However the source does not tell me what year this was, or when or how long people worked on their projects. Also, the intelligence staff writing the source does not say anything about code braking; it was all kept very secret. I don't think the writer of source A would have

    The Organization and Work of People at Bletchley Park Bletchley Park was a small estate 50 miles outside London. Bletchley Park, codenamed ‘Station X’ was an evacuation site for MI6 and the government code and cypher school (Gccs). This location was chosen, as it was far away from London that the Germans would not consider it a worthwhile target to attack. It was founded in 1939 after world war two had started and aimed to break encoded German Messages that were sent using ‘Enigma’. Station

    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

    The Effects of Bletchley Park on the War Source Based It is believed that Bletchley Park helped shorten the war by one or two years. Some people believed it had a big impact on the war, some believed it did not. In 1939, just as Bletchley Park was setting up, not much code breaking was able to take place, so very little information was found out. From source B, it agrees that “nothing would happen” as war had not even been declared yet. People even believed that they “would all go back

    Bletchley Park 'Ultra' was made possible because of help from Poland. The Poles handed a replica of the Enigma to Bletchley Park in August 1939. Without it breaking the code would have been almost impossible. In January 1940 Alan Turing became convinced that the Poles had misinterpreted the workings of the Enigma and, after meeting them, realized that he was correct. He then managed to crack the 'Green' code. In February 1940 John Herivel thought of the idea of putting himself in an

    Organisation and Work of the People at BletchleyPark In 1938, Chief of M.I.6; Admiral Sinclair purchased, at his own expense, the house that would later be converted into Bletchley Park. At the beginning of the war, Station X had two main goals. The first was to decode the signals sent by the Germans using simple encryption which were easily cracked. The second goal was the mission of cracking the Enigma coding system which the Germans used to send the more vital messages. The first

    Enigma What is an Enigma? Enigma “means a mystery” (Guynn). Although there are several alternative meanings, to the Germans this meant a thin line between victory and defeat. During World War II the allies not only intercepted encrypted messages, they broke them but not without the help of A.M. Turing. “In the early years of World War II,” (Sales), the airways in Poland were flooded with coded messages that created confusion with the “cryptanalyst working in the cipher bureau” (Maziakowski)

Also during World War II, Alan Turing developed an electromechanical device called the ‘Bombe’, which was used at Blecthley Park , to decode encrypted transmissions from the German Axis soldiers who were using the Enigma Machine to encode their communications.
