Bill Tutte, who came up to Trinity to read Natural Sciences, specialising in chemistry, was the greatest codebreaker of WWII , and one of the founders of modern combinatorics. In this talk I shall say a little about his work as a codebreaker, and a little more about some of his revolutionary ideas in mathematics.
