Calling all Secret Agents... Operation Bletchley: Christmas in Berlin is your virtual codebreaking challenge. Set during the height of the Cold War and the Berlin Airlift in 1948 Berlin, your mission is to cover 24 miles on foot through Soviet territory, decrypt vital intelligence about the blockade, cracking codes as you go and help bring our stranded contacts back to HQ. Do you have what it takes to accomplish your mission and deliver the final message before time runs out?

The 12 days of Christmas but not as you know it. Your mission begins on 26 December and you must complete, and deliver the final message by midnight on 6 January 2021.

With three levels of codes to choose from; junior, codebreaker and cypher expert, get the whole family together this Christmas - you have 12 days and one chance to break the Soviet blockade.

Operation Bletchley: Christmas in Berlin is a virtual event raising funds for ABF The Soldiers' Charity. Fundraising is appreciated, but completely optional. We have some great incentives to help you along the way.

It's Christmas 1948. Since the fall of the Nazi regime, Germany has been carved up into four zones. In the West, there are three zones occupied by British, French and American troops. To the East, there are the Soviets. And there lies the problem. Deep inside the Soviet zone, hundreds of miles from the Western boundary, is the capital of Berlin. And like the rest of the country, Berlin, too, is divided into four zones.

Cooperation between East and West has deteriorated, and on 18 June 1948, Stalin's communist regime closed road, rail and water supplies to West Berlin - leaving two million Germans cut off from vital resources. The city was already suffering from food shortages, crime and violence. But with the recent blockade stopping road and rail support from Western allies, the prospect of a peaceful Christmas seems bleak at best.

And yet, there is still hope. Operation Plainfare is well underway, with British and American troops flying supplies down a 100-mile air corridor to Tempelhof and Gatow. And now, with the Soviets dead-set on kicking Western allies out of Berlin, we need your help to beat the blockade before it's too late.

How? We need you to go beyond the blockade and discover the truth of what's happening in the East. We've arranged for you to make contact with key officials, but you'll need to move on foot and crack codes along the way to avoid being captured. It's a frosty journey that's certainly not for the faint-hearted. Are you up to the challenge?
