Little bird just had a bad case of Saint Nick's, obviously at the wrong time. Zee Germans... fly away! Wait, what? Must deliver package... oooh, I
smell milk and cookies. Zee package! Hrrm.
Fast forward to many years later, some dude finds some bones in his chimney - with an important message.
Come on now, what's not more intriguing than that?
Anyway, to the point.
Said message didn't come from an Enigma, as that machine was used primarily by the Germans in WWII. At that time, any Enigma machines captured by the
allied forces would be quickly removed from the area and used for study, so it's doubtful one would be used for encoding/decoding purposes in the
Going by that idea and assuming that this message did indeed come from an allied source, which by all intents it appears to be... then this cipher is
either one of the two possibilities:
1. Machine made (mechanically)
2. Human made (brains and hands, paper and pencil)
My bets are on this cipher originating from an M-209. Yep that's what I'm going with, though no emulator available for my OS. (mac)
