One of the last members of the Bletchley Park codebreakers has died at the age of 93.
Captain Raymond "Jerry" Roberts passed away after a short illness.
Capt Roberts received an MBE in the 2013 New Years Honest List.
He spoke to ITV News Anglia in the days leading up to the ceremony, and admitted that he was looking forward to meeting the Queen.
"I'm grateful for the honour," he said.
"I feel that the team as a whole deserved a higher honour, but I'm very pleased myself to have been awarded an honour, especially as it means hopefully I shall meet Her Majesty The Queen again."
