Here are some questions to jog your memory:
How did you come to be engaged in this work?

Had you been asked about any relevant qualification (eg typing, foreign language)?

Where did you do your basic training?

When were you told you would be engaged in intelligence-related work?

Where were you billeted? Were any colleagues there as well?

Who were your supervisors?

What shift pattern did you work?

How and where were you finally demobbed?

POSTHUMOUS RECOGNITION

Those who served at Bletchley Park and who are sadly no longer with us are currently listed in a register held and maintained by the Bletchley Park Trust. Although we cannot issue the commemorative badges in respect of those who have died, GCHQ will support the Trust by preparing a bound copy of this Register to be held at Bletchley Park, and by maintaining an on-line copy of it. If you know someone who was a Bletchley Park Veteran and is no longer alive, please fill in a Posthumous Form on the Bletchley Park website (www.bletchleypark.org.uk) and post to the Bletchley Park Trust, The Mansion, Bletchley Park, Milton Keynes, MK3 6EB, United Kingdom, or email to: info@bletchleypark.org.uk ; alternatively please write to Bletchley Park if you wish to add someone’s name to the register.
