> Hello,
> This Sunday 9th July there will be a GLLUG expedition to Bletchley
> Park.
> Bletchley Park was the centre of the Allied cryptanalysis and code
> breaking efforts during the Second World War. The most notable
> achievement was the breaking of the German Enigma cipher which is said
> to have brought the war to an end 2 years early.
> It was home to a number of famous mathematicians and cryptanalysts
> including Alan Turing - the father of modern computer science.
> The GLLUG trip is going to take in the Computer museum from its
> origins
> with the Colossus, invented during the Second World War to break
> Lorenz
> codes through the mainframes of the 1960's, mini computers, homebuilt
> micros to the PC's of today. There is also a host of wartime exhibits
> including vehicles, machinery and a Churchill exhibition to take in.
> On 9th July there is also a Vintage car and motorbike exhibition in
> the
> park.
> The plan at the moment is for GLLUG members to make their own way to
> Bletchley Park, meet for a picnic and visit the attractions. July 9th
> is
> also the World Cup Final day so it is predicted those who care may
> slope
> off to a local pub, or race back to London for the 7pm kickoff.
> The cost of the trip will be your travel to the park from Euston
> station
> plus the entry fee to the park which could be £8.50 (Internet
> booking),
> £10 (on the day) or £8 (if you register your name with me ASAP)
> We are meeting "under the big tree" at 1230 for a picnic and then
> splitting into smaller groups to look at the exhibits, vintage cars,
> walk around the park etc.
> So far we have one set of parents, 2 sets of wives and 2 children
> attending as well so feel free to bring people along for the day.
> More details from the website http://gllug.org.uk/summer and if you
