Turing Bombe Replica

BBC NEWS | UK | Enigma replica ‘homage to heroes’

It has taken 10 years and about 60 volunteers to rebuild piece-by-piece a replica of the Turing Bombe – the vital machine which cracked the Nazis’ Enigma Code.

Excellent stuff, this. The work of the codebreakers at Bletchely Park was kept secret at the time, and for many years afterwards. Recreating the devices used will help people remember heroes whose contribution to the war effort could not be acknowledged at the time.
