Someone is using a compass on a 1940s map. The map is placed on a desk, and the hand using the compass is visible as the person stands just out of shot, though they are wearing a blue RAF uniform.

Can you and your family solve puzzles and codes from the Second World War? 

Problem solving skills and the ability to work out codes were essential skills for people working in the RAF during the Second World War.

Work together as a family in our puzzle room and see if you can come up with the answers. Only by solving four different challenges will you know if you've got what it takes. 

Venue supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. People's Postcode Lottery
