Was this the first Bletchley Park Reunion?

I spent today with Bletchley Park veteran, Charlotte Webb and we made some interesting documentary discoveries.

While going through the papers Betty has collected over the years, we came across an invitation and programme for a Bletchley Park Reunion held on 14 October 1978.

Sir Harry Hinsley, Hut 4 veteran and official historian of British Intelligence in the Second World War, organised the event to bring together the WRNs of Bletchley Park.

Betty’s cousin (through marriage), who had served as a WRN at Bletchley Park during the Second World War, invited Betty to the reunion as a guest. Betty has kept the documents to mark the occasion when she first heard other Bletchley Park veterans share stories about their wartime work.
