Re: Using Ultra to research the Luftwaffe

Hi Nick,

thanks for the reply. I missed photographing it in 2008 through ignorance, but have it on my 'list' to hopefully get done this year.

Cheers

Rod

Many thanks Rod, superbly helpful. I probably mean the ones just before, since I am interested in the 1941/42 period.

Just what the doctor ordered!

Thanks again.

All the best

Andreas

From the BBC News website: Bletchley Park WWII archive to go online

The downside is they think it'll take three years to do the first phase.

Some more detail here of what we can look forward to from the Bletchley Park scanning project. For instance:

"… thousands of card indexes on different subject matter … In addition … there are log-books containing the original typescript of intercepted German messages … three fairly large rooms stacked floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall [of books and cards]."

And this from the latest Bletchley Park newsletter.

Re: Using Ultra to research the Luftwaffe

I put in a query about a week ago concerning the manufacturers card indexes to see what might be held on a couple of my 'favourite' manufacturers. I also enquired as to the types of card indexes which might be held for the Luftwaffe but to date haven't had a response.

Re: Using Ultra to research the Luftwaffe

Hi Nick

Thanks for the info.

Do the decrypts identify which Luftwaffe navigation beams are being used each night against UK cities?

Thanks

Austin

PS: Bought a copy of Ghostbombers three weeks ago - and loving it!

So far the material I've read (July – mid September) has only had messages about the various beacons that will be available or required each night. This may mean more to a specialist than it does to me, however. I'll let you know what the next batch of material (for October and November) brings when I can start work on it.

Glad you're enjoying Ghost Bombers.

If you want 1940, it's HW5/1 to HW5/6 inclusive.
