    Default Interesting signed & dedicated book Bletchley Park related

    I already owned a copy of this book, but it is a paper back 1940 dated revised edition, stikll nice to have. I saw this earlier hardback edition for sale for what seemed a sensible price and I won it.

    I had noticed it was author signed which was also part of the appeal but it is only since it arrived today that I looked into the person to whom it was dedicated.

    To Lt. Commander Galpin. from E O Skaife. 13/2/25

    Lt Commander William Sidney Galpin was aboard the HMS Glatton when it exploded in 1918. According to the research in the attached thread he served in WWII in Hut 6 at Bletchley Park.

    Tragic tale, the Glatton. Strange to think that it lies there still yet today beneath the car ferry dock.
