A Conversation for Tommy Flowers - Technical Innovator

There is something heart-wrenching about unsung heroes. I have always thought that Alan Turing would be as much a household name as Einstein if he had been American instead of British; and would have had a long life of fame instead of death in dishonour and obscurity fifty years ago.
And this is the first I have ever heard of Tommy Flowers. Respect.

If no one else reads this, I have made at least one other person aware of Tommy Flowers. Respect to you too.

One of the *very* few *real* Men of Honour that the world has ever produced! Thank you for making his story known !

Tommy the Technician sounds a very interesting fellow to me! Is one of the most exciting contemporary biographies i've seen, thanks for that.
"He seems to have been a practical child, when told of the arrival of a baby sister he declared a preference for a 'Meccano2' set."

I don't if anyone will look at this but Tommy flowers was my Husbands Great Uncle. All this info about him was not known until we read about it on the web.
