Thurs., March 19, the Ocean Beach Historical Society Presented a wonderful speaker… Margaret Francis worked on the decoding machines as seen in the movie “The Imitation Game”. Margaret Francis is a WWII Veteran of the WRENS (Women’s Royal Navy Service) in England. She worked on the decoding machines (the bombe) 10 miles from Bletchley Hall at Gayhurst Manor.
Margaret talked about her experiences bringing history to life. She is an excellent storyteller, and very funny, remembering with vivid details some of her experiences. She is 91 years old and has lived in San Diego since the 1957. She gave us a very entertaining night packed with historical information.
