A BLIND veteran from Wiltshire is set to march at the Cenotaph in London this Remembrance Sunday for the first time with the charity Blind Veterans UK.

Alice Wolynskyj, 93 and from Zeals near Warminster, will be marching at the Cenotaph as part of the national Remembrance Sunday commemorations with more than 100 other blind veterans supported by Blind Veterans UK, the national charity for vision-impaired ex-Service men and women.

Alice joined the Women’s Royal Navy Service in 1944. She served at Bletchley Park, as well as two other connected outstations in Eastcote and Stanmore as a Bombe Operator. She left the service in 1945 as a Wren.

She said: “I used to use an Alan Turing bombe machine to decode the messages sent by the Germans. I made a lot of friends in service and five of us made lifelong friends”.
