Thats right GL,

Just seems odd that its only for view for one day and only to staff…..Ah well popping along next week for a demo on how it works (i doubt i will understand though)

My old man was telling me that when he used to work at RAF Cosford when he opened and closed the building they had to sign a document to state that the enigma machine they held was still there.

I read in the news the Collossus(sp?) computer has been rebuilt. They even got some Germans to transmit signals by wireless from Germany to test it!

I find this sort of thing quite interesting to watch documentrys or read about. Its amazing some of the stuff they did.
