Some of the last of the band of women who helped to crack Nazi codes as part of Britain’s war effort have been reunited for the first time in 70 years.
The women, who were then only in their late teens, used Colossus, the world’s first electronic computer, to decipher messages exchanged by Hitler’s generals.
Now, after a photograph of their team of codebreakers appeared in the Telegraph, they have been reunited at Bletchley Park for the first time since the end of the war.
The photograph, which broke secrecy rules, was kept hidden in a desk draw for decades by Joanna Chorley. She discovered it shortly before the 70th anniversary of Colossus, in February.
