Primary school pupils try their hands at code breaking

Backed by the National Lottery, the War Detectives project organised by the Red2Green organisation, which runs services across Cambridgeshire for more than 600 people with disabilities, also involved students from Swaffham Bulbeck Primary School and Bottisham Village College and local residents who lived during or served during the war years.

Projects included a community learning day about codes and communications with visits to Duxford and Bletchley Park, and learning days looking at rationing, fashion, and spies. The War Detectives made seven special films, with residents sharing wartime experiences, which had ‘world’ premieres on June 10, when a time capsule containing information about what they had learned and wished to pass on to future generations, was buried close to Swaffham Bulbeck’s war memorial by Cambridgeshire’s High Sheriff Victor Lucas, Red2Green patron Andy Hamilton, and resident Ron Butler.
