ABF The Soldiers’ Charity is pleased to announce that Operation Bletchley: Winter 2020 is open for registration!
Fresh recruits are needed this winter to halt the Soviet influence in Berlin and Yugoslavia. You must walk 40 or 80 miles, crack codes and deliver the final message to Winston Churchill before it’s too late. Do you have what it takes?
Operation Bletchley is your codebreaking challenge. From 1st January your mission is to cover the miles, crack the codes and deliver the final message before time runs out on 31 January. You can take part from anywhere in the world using your phone, fitness tracker or a good old map.
Operation Bletchley: Berlin
Berlin. January 1949. Since the fall of the Nazi regime, Germany, and Berlin itself, has been divided into four zones, occupied by British, French, American and Soviet forces. Operation Plainfare is underway, but we need your help to beat the blockade. Your mission is to walk, or run, 40 miles across Berlin making contact with key officials and decrypting their coded messages. Can you crack the codes, and deliver the final message before it’s too late?
Operation Bletchley: The Balkans
The Balkans. January 1949. Yugoslavia is in the midst of a civil war. The Serb Chetniks, aided by Axis forces are targeting our regional allies and Tito’s Partisans. Brigadier Fitzroy Maclean has trained Tito’s fighters, but while he is out of the country updating Churchill, we need a new pair of boots on the ground to liaise with Bletchley Park. You’ll go undercover to arrange supply drops, organise attacks and gather intelligence in our fight against the Nazis.
Good luck recruits
