Bletchley Park in Buckinghamshire was the centre of the British code breaking operations during World War 2. It was also the home of Colossus, the first programmable electronic digital computer. After many years of denial of its existence, and being allowed to become very run-down it is now open as a museum - but had no government funding until 2012, having to rely on donations from individuals, lotteries and companies such as Google  (23-Sep-2008)

Mooch was very privileged to get his hands on an actual Enigma machine
(although its only a three rotor version of the German WW2 cipher machine).
