Overview
The Wrens of Bletchley Park

A mini pop-up exhibition reveals the contribution of the Women’s Royal Naval Service to the signals intelligence work at Bletchley Park during World War Two. By the end of the war over 2,500 Wrens were working for Bletchley Park, designated ‘Special Duties X’. They operated codebreaking machines such as Colossus and Bombe machines, performed mathematical cryptanalysis, translated Japanese and German materials, and provided valuable administrative support. This pop-up display honours the crucial role the Wrens played in the success of this secret wartime operation.
