WWI codebreaking efforts exposed in new Bletchley Park exhibition

Bletchley Park's role in the Second World War may be well documented - but today the first major exhibition exploring codebreaking in the First World War officially opens. The Duke of Kent will be there to do the honours.

Experts say the efforts of those in 1914 to 1918 allowed the Codebreakers to hit the ground running at the outbreak of the next war.

"We hope this exhibition, which runs until 2019, will help to shed light on a hitherto less well known story of WW1. As the title of the exhibition alludes to, the work of Room 40 and MI1(b) in WW1 laid the foundations of the success of Bletchley Park in WW2. Visitors will learn how these pioneers operated, and how their work led to the formation of the Government Code and Cypher School, the organisation that eventually set up Bletchley Park."
