Behind the Name

The name Hut Six is inspired by the codebreakers’ work at Bletchley Park during World War II, and the significance of the human error of the German operators that lead to the breaking of the Enigma. Initially working out of a small wooden hut, the team was eventually able to deduce the daily key of the enigma before breakfast time, giving Allied forces vital intel for the rest of the day. This breakthrough, made in 1940, was only possible due to the human error of the German Enigma machine operators, who included the same words in their daily reports; for example, the German word for weather (Wetter) in the daily weather report.

Using these known words and Alan Turing’s “bombe”, the team at Hut 6 in Bletchley Park could deduce the encryption key that was used for the day. As the Bletchley Park operation grew, the sector that had started in that small wooden hut retained their name Hut 6.
