Government honours veterans of Bletchley Park at last - V3.co.uk - formerly vnunet.com The surviving staff from Bletchley Park will finally(!!) be recognized, nearly 70 years later. Their work was thought to have shortened the war by 2 years and saved millions of lives, but until the 1970's they weren't even allowed to reveal what they did.
“After many years of having to keep their critical wartime work top secret, it is tremendous that this contribution has finally achieved recognition.”
All I can say is that it is about time the people that helped develop computing get some recognition.
