Actually he was a major code breaker long before the war started, from
sometime in the 20's. Following the work on Enigma, he led the team at
Bletchley breaking Japanese codes, and was a great help to the U. S. Navy
code breakers during a visit to the U S later in the war. If he did not get
the OBE he certainly should have.
