On the 6th September 2018 Bletchley Park are launching a new exhibition to commemorate 80 years since the formation of the ATS.
By 1945 414 members of the ATS worked at Bletchley Park in signals intelligence and support roles. The display will take the form of a number of information panels all paying tribute to the crucial work completed by the women in khaki. The panels will cover the roles filled by ATS and will contain images of those who Served there.
“We were at full stretch, whatever shift you were on, and the stress was beginning to affect most of us…….Six hours of continuous Morse with jamming, static and pressure to get the most of the message, made us so tired that we couldn’t relax and often only managed a few hours real deep sleep” Gwen Gibbs(nee Sidwell) ATS describes the activity at Beaumanor after D Day in 1944.
