Club Dinner Meeting Monday 10th October 2022

Our club meeting on Monday 10 October ended up being our most well attended event since pre-Covid. 

Our guest speaker, Alan Watson, treated us to an excellent presentation on the WWII German Enigma code machine.  Alan who is a merchant seaman and electronics engineer by background became interested in Enigma machines back in the early 1980s and was lucky enough to come across an original enigma machine for sale. 

That original purchase lead onto other purchases and he has over the years built up an incredible knowledge of the background to how the coding works and how the engineers working away at the top secret Bletchley Park were able to crack the code.  It was great to hear the story and also to see some of these fascinating machines close up.
