Interviewed a Bletchley Park historian!

Had a great interview with Bletchley Park chief historian, David Kenyon for about an hour and a half. I had seen much of the park before talking to him, and he pointed me to some other places in the park as must-see. In addition to answering my questions, he had cool anecdotes to relate, such as the fact that the gardeners for the Commonwealth War Graves caring for the cemeteries after WWI were British. Some let their garden sheds be used as safe houses on the route to ferrying downed allied air men back to Britain. Cool, eh?

I also picked up some replicas of WWI literature issued to soldiers at the time, as well as a newspaper about the Dam Busters. Really interesting detail about life at the time.
