Overview
Extra insights from the Bletchley Park podcast

Bletchley Park is an independent charitable trust that relies on visitors for 95% of our operating costs. A great way to support the museum is to become a Friend of Bletchley Park.

As a Friend of Bletchley Park, you not only get our normal free unlimited year-round access to our heritage site and museum, but a range of other benefits including exclusive  events, previews and discounts, all whilst knowing you are helping us to keep telling the story of the vital war-winning work carried out by the men and women of The Government Code and Cypher School during World War Two.

So in this episode, we take you back to early 2018 and to one of those exclusive Friends talks from our very own Research Historian Dr David Kenyon. The Y Service was the organisation responsible for intercepting enemy wireless and radio communications with Y Stations based around the world. In his talk, David focused on a smaller part of this organisation, the Coastal Y Service.

In the Q&A that follows his talk, who better to help him than Pat Davies who from 1942 – 1945 was one of those Intercept Operators for the Royal Navy. Post-war, Pat had an astonishing career as a journalist, documentary maker and television producer. In June 2019, the French Government awarded her the Legion d’honneur.
