Work is progressing on the Bill Tutte memorial on Rutland Hill, Newmarket, which will pay lasting tribute to the man who played a vital code-breaking role in World War 2.

The five brushed stainless steel panels are perforated to resemble the punched paper tape used to decode messages at Bletchley Park and viewed from one aspect will depict Bill’s features.

The memorial ‘Codebreaker’ has been designed by sculptor Harry Gray who has iconic work in London and Ipswich and has been made possible through a fund-raising campaign by the Journal and money from local councils.

The Bill Tutte Memorial Fund is also providing money for a maths scholarship. The memorial will be opened on September 10 at 11.30am.
