The arguments about Alan Turing's homosexuality and his war time service are being blurred here - whether on purpose or not. They have absolutely nothing to do with each other. What Alan Turing admitted was 'gross indecency' and the law then proscribed a prison sentence. He was offered the choice of imprisonment or chemical castration, he chose the latter. The current day attitude to these facts is irrelevant. For his war time achievements he deserves all the pothumous laurels this nation can provide - a brilliant man. If the nation has neglected its responsibility in this respect, it should make amends. Best, Steve.
