A blue plaque is being unveiled today to mark the centenary of the birth of Alan Turing.
The mathematical genius who went to school in Dorset helped crack German codes in the Second World War and went on to become a pioneer of the modern computer.
In 1945 Turing received an OBE for services to the Foreign Office, although the real reason for this honour remained top secret for another 30 years.
Many historians today believe that the work of the code-breakers shortened the war by two years.
