Have your say

A CITY pensioner who served at Bletchley Park, the secret Second World War code-breaking facility, is to speak about his experiences this week.

Bill Smith, 86, will give a talk at The Open Door community centre on Morningside Road on Wednesday evening.

Mr Smith, from Morningside, a former post office engineer, was asked to leave Edinburgh during the war to join the team at Bletchley Park in Buckinghamshire as an intelligence officer, taking a key role in the fight against German attack.

His talk will be illustrated with photographs of his experience, as well as many humorous anecdotes.

The event takes place at 7pm. Tickets cost £3 and can be booked by calling the centre on 0131-447 9757.
