CCF Operation Bletchley – 12 Days | 24 miles | 12 codes


Over the Christmas holidays, the RGS CCF took on Operation Bletchley – Christmas in Berlin as a virtual codebreaking challenge. Inspired by the work of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity the RGS CCF wanted to support them by raising money by participating in the operation.

Working with the Intelligence Corp, the mission was to cover 24 miles on foot through Soviet territory, decrypt vital intelligence about the blockade, crack codes and help bring stranded contacts back to HQ. As a Contingent however, RGS CCF decided to take on the challenge but to make it their own. As the action was set in Berlin, they decided to cover the distance between Reigate (UK) and Berlin – approximately 680 miles.

As a Contingent, the RGS CCF have covered 754 miles over twelve days, raising over £400 so far. If you would like to donate to this cause, please do click on the ‘Donate’ button on their fundraising page.

Whilst out on their walks the students took some lovely photos of what they saw as part of an RGS CCF photo competition.
