Podcast 111: The best of the Reunions Part Two

Fri, 18 Sep 2020
The second of three episodes this month

As we explained in the last show, due to COVID-19, Bletchley Park Trust had to take the difficult decision not to host our Annual Veterans’ Reunion onsite this year.


To continue to mark what would have been this year’s reunion, this is the second of three special episodes we will be bringing you this month, to still pay tribute to our Veterans.


The Reunion is always the busiest day of the year for the podcast, catching up with old friends and rushing around trying to make sure that we can record as many Veterans as we can. But it hasn’t just been our original co-host Katherine Lynch and producer Mark Cotton. We have also had help from a group of people we like to call our roving reporters. They are friends of the podcast who kindly give their time to help us allow the Veterans, to tell their stories, in their own voices.


We want to thank everyone who has helped us at each reunion since 2012 but especially those featured in this episode: Sarah Langston, Kerry Howard, Astrid Specht, Helen Legh and of course Katherine Lynch.


The Bletchley Park Veterans featured in this episode, in order of appearance are:


  • Flo Cole
  • Cicely Anderson
  • Mimi Gallilee
  • Kay Wingate
  • Nancy Clark
  • Geoffrey Pidgeon
  • Pat Davies
  • Christine Brose
  • Joan Smeaton
  • Mary Heal
  • Eric Dodd


We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Veterans of Bletchley Park and its Outstations, for their service.
