Bletchley Park

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Bletchley Park Question 3 Source D is a description from one of the intelligence staff working in Hut 3 on the deciphering of the Enigma code. The source gives details of what their specific hut did.

Middle

As this member of staff was only a translator, all he did was change the messages from German to English and index it, which was not really involved in decoding the messages. The decoding of the messages Hut 3 received happened all in Hut 6 where all the German Air Force messages were sent.

This shows us what the machine looked like to encrypt the message, but tells us nothing on how the messages were decrypted. ...read more.

Conclusion

Although we know that the machine helped intelligence staff, we do not actually learn anything about the decoding just from a picture of the Enigma machine. To conclude, neither source give us any detail into how the Enigma codes were decoded, but more into the factors which helped the process along. Source D is about translation of the codes, not decoding, and Source E is a photograph of the Enigma machine which helped the Bletchley Park staff find a way to decode the Enigma, but was not actually involved in the process. ...read more.
