Enigma and Friends Evening

April 26

Come to Botley Masonic Centre 26th April to hear a fascinating presentation by Alan Watson OBE, on the Enigma Machine and its importance during the Second World War. See Enigma machines in use and find out about their incredible history. Cost £10 per person, all proceeds to the M.B.F. 2026 appeal.

In the build up to the Second World War, German engineers took the existng design of the Enigma machine and made significant  improvements to the cryptographic strength of the machine. Bletchley Park was the United Kingdom’s main decryption establishment, where ciphers and codes of Axis countries were sent for decryption. The most important of these were the ciphers generated by the German Enigma and Lorenz machines. This sets the scene for the presentation which will cover the basic design of the machine, the improvements made to suit the German War machine and how the cryptologist’s at Bletchley Park went about cracking the code.
