Bletchley Park

Patrick Baty carried out some paint analysis at Bletchley Park the wartime Code and Cipher School

Bletchley Park, also known as Station X, is an estate located in the town of Bletchley, in Buckinghamshire. During World War II, Bletchley Park was the site of the United Kingdom’s main decryption establishment, the Government Code and Cypher School. Ciphers and codes of several Axis countries were decrypted there, most importantly ciphers generated by the German Enigma and Lorenz machines.

I was asked for advice on the paint colours that would have been employed during the War. I took a series of paint samples for analysis.
