Robins Family UK: Day Three: Bletchley Park

Monday was rainy and cold, but it didn't stop us from heading up two hours to Bletchley Park, the home of the Enigma machine, a coding device used in WWII, as well as the former home of British Intelligence (Sir Winston Churchill is also very associated with the place). It was interesting, they had lots of old time 40's style people walking around, and lots of displays of war-time memorabilia, so it was quite interesting.

This is a Japanese code-book

This is the enigma machine

An original newspaper from V-Day :)

This is the house on the grounds of Bletchley Park, very big, very nice inside

A bust of the man himself... Churchill

A few antiques :)

WWII Red Cross ambulance

Beautiful detail...

Hilarious "double skulls" these were in a display of ships made as jokes
