GCHQ historian celebrates 100 years of Signals Intelligence at Scarborough.

To mark the centenary of Signals Intelligence at Scarborough, the official GCHQ Historian gave a unique presentation about the history of the site, held at the Scarborough Spa Grand Hall on 26 July 2014.

This event was a rare opportunity for the public to hear about Scarborough's secret past, and took the audience from the early days of radio transmissions, to the Enigma story, Bletchley Park, and much more.

Monies raised from ticket sales were distributed to local good causes by the GCHQ Centenary Charity Fund.
