Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Computer pioneer and codebreaker Alan Turing will feature on the new design of the Bank of England's £50 note. Long overdue recognition.

Small recompense for the bullying that young man  had to bear. I know times were different in those days, but he did not deserve the torment that drove him to suicide 2 years after serving a prison sentence.  He apparently ate an Apple containing Cyanide, but there's still doubts about it being suicide.   That brilliant young man deserved a Knighthood for the tremendous work he did.

Couldn't agree more.

Yes thankfully times have changed and I think now most people will know his name and remember him for what a tremendous thing he did for our country.

And in recognition I will now try to collect as meany of those notes as I can get my hands on 🙂

So that's what a £50 note looks like.
