USING IN AUSTRALIA DURING WWII
The British developed Typex Cipher Machine was originally based on the Enigma machine which had first been used in 1926. GCCS had bought two Enigma machines in 1928.
On 16 July 1943, Lt. Col. Sanders of Central Bureau noted in a Minute Paper that special Typex settings were in his possession and that 27 Typex machines had been allocated to Central Bureau for "Y" purposes. He noted that three of those 27 were in transit by sea at that time and he doubted whether the delivery of any other Typex machines could have been expected for many months to come.
