  I note the following
  "Dr Alan Turing was an exceptional man with a brilliant mind," said
  Mr Grayling.

  He said the research Turing carried out during the war at
  Bletchley Park undoubtedly shortened the conflict and saved
  thousands of lives.

  From my research - general (and later president) Eisenhower seemed
  to think that Project Ultra save millions (not thousands) of
  lives, shortened and maybe won the War.
  - Never forget.
