At 18 years of age, Charlotte Vine-Stevens leaves college and volunteers for the ATS, the Womens’ Army. After basic training she is given a travel warrant and instructions to go to Bletchley Station.
Between 1941 and 1945 Charlotte finds herself stationed at the Government Code and Cypher School’s codebreaking operation at Bletchley Park.
After working with Major Ralph Tester in the Bletchley Mansion, she moves to the Japanese Section in Block F to paraphrase deciphered Japanese messages. In 1945 this work leads Charlotte to see out the war in the Pacifit at The Pentagon.
Secret Postings follows Charlotte’s life from a childhood in rural Shropshire, to a turbulent pre-war Germany, a World War adventure at Bletchley Park, The Pentagon and beyond.
