Although there was what Smith describes as a 'collegiate atmosphere' and women were free to challenge their male colleagues as they saw fit, they were paid a third less than the men and after the war ended, many melted back into ordinary life.
Among them were men from an organisation called the Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS) whose job it was to assess the Georgian building's suitability for becoming the headquarters of a secret group of top level code breakers.
By the end of 1940, 12,000 people worked at Bletchley and its sub-camps, whether as cooks and support staff or as code breakers decrypting the military codes and ciphers that secured German, Japanese, and other Axis nation's communications.
The buildings were rescued, after the site was declared a conservation area by Milton Keynes council in 1992 and taken over by the Bletchley Park Trust which has since turned the building into a museum dedicated to the exploits of the men and women who helped Britain and its allies.
