What Jonty did at Room 40

Much of what Jonty and Orlando did during their time in Room 40 is still covered by the Official Secrets Act, and they won’t confess the details to me. However, I’ve been doing some research of my own, in a book called “Code Breakers”.

MI1b was a parallel organisation, who guarded their own secrecy by employing a decoy to meet any unwanted visitors who’d got past their doorman, said decoy giving “the impression of a typical British idiot.”

I bet the bods at Room 40 did the same and I bet Jonty was on the rota for the role.
