On the Bletchley Park Roll of Honour

Recently I saw a television programme about a man who discovered that his father worked at Bletchley Park during the Second World War.  It came as a complete surprise because when his father was alive he never once mentioned where he had served and exactly what he did during WWII.

Today I consulted the Bletchley Park Roll of Honour and found the name and service record of an elderly lady.
She had never told her parents that she worked at Bletchley Park. In fact she shared this secret years later with very few people.  Now this noble lady knows that her record is in the public domain, and more people have discovered her remarkable war service at Hut 6, Block D.  The Bletchley Park Roll of Honour shows that she served there from November 1942 until August 1945, working at deciphering.

For many years after WWII the general public knew very little about the vital work carried out at Bletchley Park.  Today we know about the Enigma story and the code-breaking achievements of the dedicated men and women of Bletchley Park.

Not only is this elderly lady on the Bletchley Park Roll of Honour, she is also on the heavenly roll of honour with her name written in the Lamb's Book of Life.  The lady has a firm saving faith in the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. When the roll is called up yonder...she'll be there!
