The Enigma machine on display at Bletchley Park

A rare Enigma machine, used by Franco’s forces in the Spanish Civil War to encode radio messages, has recently been given to the Bletchley Park Trust by a Spanish intelligence agency.

In November 1936, General Franco, reaalising [sic] that he needed secure communications to direct his forces in the Spanish Civil War, ordered ten Enigma machines.

In 1937, he ordered another batch and German and Italian forces fighting on his side would use similar machines to communicate with Franco’s forces.
