Wartime radio operator recognised (UK)





A radio operator from Greater Manchester, who helped unlock German coded messages during World War II, has been recognised for his efforts.

Albert Garforth, 83, of Foxdenton Lane, Middleton Junction, spent the last year of the war helping the code-breakers at Bletchley Park unlock the Enigma code.

Their work meant the Allies gained vital information about German troop movements, securing victory in 1945.

Mr Garforth has received a Bletchley Park Commemorative Badge.
