With all the buzz and excitement around the forthcoming movie, The Imitation Game I think it’s a brilliant time to really celebrate the few women codebreakers at Bletchley Park who were actually breaking Enigma codes alongside their male peers.
Rumour has it that the movie will include some areas of ‘artistic licence’ to add to the relationship between Alan Turing and Joan Clarke (one of the few women codebreakers at Bletchley Park).
I don’t have a problem with a bit of fictional embellishment but I think it is vital to keep the facts at hand too.
So, I’m compiling my research into three women codebreakers- Margaret Rock, Joan Clarke (later Murray) and Mavis Lever (later Batey) and publishing a short e-book to pay tribute to these inspirational women at a time that one of them is portrayed in a leading movie role.
I would love to see their faces at the top of the Amazon charts for the world to see and discover – but I’m going to say that, aren’t I!
I have already provided links to some of the available information about Margaret, Joan and Mavis on a dedicated page – Click here to read more about these women codebreakers.
