Anne Glyn- Jones opens up the secret world of the Wren interceptors of German Morse Code signals during World War II. Leaving her girls boarding school with romantic ideas about joining the navy as a Wren, Anne had no idea that she would be working for the mysterious 'Station X', which we now know to be Bletchley Park. Round the clock shifts, bed bugs, rats and poor diet took its toll, as well as the ongoing lack of recognition from the Navy hierarchy. Morse Code Wrens of Station X is a very personal memoir of a young woman s experiences of war time service in the Wrens, as well as providing fascinating insights into the daily realities of the battle for military intelligence superiority.

Review:

"I absolutely love Anne Glyn-Jones' book: freshly informative, eye-openingly vivid and often terrifically funny too. The sharpness that she brought to her incredibly demanding secret intercept work didn't let up away from the listening stations. From Plymouth to a really fascinating account of war-time Gibraltar; her voice is fantastically engaging and original throughout." --Sinclair MacKay, author of The Secret Listeners and The Secret Life of Bletchley Park.

"The important role of the WRNS in wartime is often unsung. The Wrens played a vital part in the Royal Navy's struggle against the Axis powers in the Second World War at Bletchley Park and elsewhere. Some lost their lives serving the cause. Anne Glyn-Jones has written a vivid, illuminating, and entertaining memoir of those tense and tumultuous days. It is an impressive achievement." --Jonathan Dimbleby, author, journalist and broadcaster

I am delighted that Anne Glyn-Jones, now aged 94, has been able to leave us this valuable contribution to the WRNS history. Her bravery, tenacity and discretion are a shining example to younger women today wanting to make a contribution to society by serving those around them. --HRH The Princess Royal in the foreword

About the Author:

Anne Glyn-Jones had romantic ideas about joining the Navy and 'ran away to sea' at 18. She joined the 'Wrens' and trained as a wireless telegraphist, intercepting morse code messages from German ships. Unknown to her she was working for Station X- Bletchley Park. In Gibraltar she was one of 150 Wrens amongst a male servicemen population of 18000. Returning to the UK she challenged the Naval hierarchy for proper pay and recognition. The Daily Mail called her a 'protofeminist'. Now aged 94, Anne lives in Devon and is still lively, witty and articulate.
