Description

Anne Glyn-Jones opens up the secret world of the interceptors of German Morse Code signals during World War II.  Leaving her girls’ boarding school with romantic ideas about  joining the navy as a Wren, Anne had no idea that she would be working for the mysterious ‘Station X’, which we now know to be Bletchley Park.  Round the clock shifts, bed bugs, rats and poor diet took its toll, as well as the ongoing lack of recognition from the Navy hierarchy.  Morse Code Wrens of Station X is a very personal memoir of a young woman’s experiences of war time service, as well as providing fascinating insights into the daily realities of the battle for military intelligence superiority.

    “I absolutely love Anne Glyn-Jones’s book: freshly informative, eye-openingly vivid and often terrifically funny too. The sharpness that she brought to her incredibly demanding secret intercept work didn’t let up away from the listening stations. From Plymouth to a really colourful and fascinating account of wartime Gibraltar, her voice is fantastically engaging and original throughout.” Sinclair McKay, author of The Secret Listeners, and The Secret Life of Bletchley Park.

     “The important role of the WRNS in wartime is often unsung. The Wrens played a vital part in the Royal Navy’s struggle against the Axis powers in the Second World War at Bletchley Park and elsewhere. Some lost their lives serving the cause. Anne Glyn-Jones has written a vivid, illuminating, and entertaining memoir of those tense and tumultuous days. It is an impressive achievement.”
