Dundee Society[edit]

Could anyone cite a reference about the Dundee Society? Sv1xv (talk) 11:31, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

See Kahn's The Codebreakers. I think I saw a marmalade jar in the National Cryptologic Museum. Howard C. Berkowitz (talk) 02:34, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

I have found reference to L.D.C. and his course but not to the Dundee Society. Could you please tell me in which chapter I should search for this ? Sv1xv (talk) 08:41, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

See the Cryptologic Spectrum, Winter 1979 - Vol. 9, No. 1[1]. — DAGwyn (talk) 06:47, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

Part of Military History?[edit]

I received some private communication by a fellow WP editor that this article does not belong in the WP Military History, since it is a fictional exercise with no direct connection to actual military operations. Any views & opinions? Sv1xv (talk) 15:11, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

At the National Training Center, heavy battalions fight "Krasnovians". Clearly, since there is no such country, that must be a fictional exercise with no direct connection to actual military operations. Howard C. Berkowitz (talk) 02:36, 11 February 2008 (UTC)
The main argument is that the Z.P. generally doesn't involve any military units, not even ours. Most if not all of the students trained using the Z.P. were civilian. — DAGwyn (talk) 16:02, 12 February 2008 (UTC)
On the other hand, some aspects of military history play into solving the Zendian problem, as there are references to various kinds and sizes of ammo, types of actual radios and vehicles, typical map designators, etc. The referenced equipment seems to date from around the time of the Korean War. — DAGwyn (talk) 06:27, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

Map of Zendia[edit]

I can supply a map of Zendia, possibly even a photo of the Museum's copy mentioned in the article. Would it be useful or not? — DAGwyn (talk) 06:27, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

I'm currently working on producing a high-quality reproduction of the master map of Zendia. I would like to include a low-resolution image in the ZP article, which would link to a high-resolution version, and would appreciate suggestions about the best way to implement this. — DAGwyn (talk) 19:16, 8 June 2017 (UTC)
