Enigma photographs uncovered

As part of the project with the locally based Bletchley Park Trust, a year or so ago we had the chance to take some detailed photographs of a German WW2 Enigma Machine. It was their 4 Rotor Marine Enigma Machine to be exact, used to send and receive orders or messages using the complex Enigma code employed by the Germans during World War Two. Unknown to the Germans, the team working at Bletchley Park 'cracked' the Enigma code giving the Allies the major advantage of reading secret German communications. The photos were never used for the project but we thought they deserved 'dusting down' and incorporating into a web site. They certainly illustrate a part of history if not a part of 'computing' history.
