The highly eccentric Alfred Dillwyn Knox, known as 'Dilly', was one of the leading figures in the British code-breaking successes of the two world wars. Mavis Batey, who worked for Knox at Bletchley Park, reveals the vital part Dilly played in the deception operation that ensured the success of the D-Day landings, altering the course of the Second World War.
Mavis Batey was one of 'Dilly's girls', the young female codebreakers allocated to help him break the various Enigma ciphers. Batey, the author of numerous books, advised Kate Winslet, star of the film Enigma, on what it was like to be one of the few female codebreakers at Bletchley Park.
