Geocache Description:

The Imitation Game


The cache is not at the listed Coordinates, you have to solve the puzzle.  You might have to walk quite far, and you might have to revisit some sites with extra resources to try and solve the puzzle.  Although no special tools will be required, some special skills might.  There is a little prize for the FTF.  Have Fun and Good Luck.

The Imitation game is a film, about the cracking of the Enigma code in WW2.  This cache is about the story that this film tells, rather than the facts of what actually might have occurred.

During WW2, Germany believed that it’s communications were indecipherable to the Allies due to them encrypting it with the enigma machine.  However mathematicians at Bletchley Park cracked the cyphers produced by the enigma machine and played a vital role in the final defeat of Germany

There are several write-ups of how the enigma machine worked and also how it was cracked, they are all too long and detailed to include in this cache, although very interesting.

Congratulations to dandent on FTF
