It was in this connection that I met Gordon Welchman, one of the key individuals
involved in the British effort on the Enigma intercepts. Gordon Welchman's
imaginative foresight, coupled with an exceptional administrative capability and
an extraordinary comprehension of the intricacies of the Enigma cipher machine,
enabled him to make an outstanding contribution to the successful and timely
exploitation of the Enigma intercepts. He deserves credit fora major contribution
to the ...

In The Hut Six Story, Gordon Welchman describes how he began noting the
timings and frequencies of intercepted German messages, particularly the
opening call signs, groups of letters that were sent before the message itself. Like
Marian Rejewski, the Polish mathematician who first broke the Enigma,
Welchman saw that the sender's very first letters indicated to the receiver how the
machine was set up. Welchman asked for a complete register of all intercepted
Enigma traffic to be ...

Its chief cryptanalysts, Gordon Welchman and Alan Turing (in Hut 6 and Hut 8),
were utterly swamped with work and exhausted; the dozen “three-rotor” bombes
in operation were incapable of absorbing further loads. Moreover, owing to the
need for utmost secrecy, the importance of the work at Bletchley Park was not
appreciated or understood by those not in the picture and, as a result, London
bureaucrats had not given the codebreakers the support they required and
deserved.

JOAN MURRAY I was recruited for GC&CS by Gordon Welchman, who had
supervised me in geometry for Part II of the Cambridge Tripos. When he
interviewed me, early in 1940, he said that the work did not really need
mathematics but mathematicians tended to be good at it. Without breaching
security he must have said enough to attract me, although the pay would be low,
at £2 a week, I think; this had been increased by a cost-of-living bonus before I
joined, which was after ...

... leading to concern among the codebreakers that they might not get back into it
at all. No matter how hard they tried, they simply could not get back into the
Enigma cyphers. The solution came as a result of a moment of inspiration by
John Herivel. The 21-year-old from Belfast was brought in at the end of January
1940 by Gordon Welchman, who had been his mathematics tutor at Sidney
Sussex College, Cambridge, and recognised that he had exceptional talent as a
mathematician.
