More information on the Irish codebreakers

I’ve already given some information on the secretive Irish codebreakers of WWII. Mr David Mee has uploaded a few pages from the book ‘G2, Irish Military Intelligence for the period 1918-45’ by Maurice Walsh.

These mention the arrest of German agents and the examination of their cipher systems. They also reveal cooperation between the Irish unit and Bletchley Park.

There is also a nice picture of dr Richard Hayes, the top cryptanalyst, whom the British called ‘extremely able’.
