Subject: RE: Signal Service Solves CSA Cipher

Message Detail:
Interesting thing I've ferreted out from bits and pieces, ie how slow HQ Washington was to find a means of sharing discovery in one army/department with that in another. Same thing seems to have occurred in USMT. (A message in Naval Chronology, early '65, if I recall, reports how the Vigenere cipher worked> In Plum, first enemy cipher known to Plum was mid '63, when it had been in use around a year to a year and a half. The memoirs concentrate on final memories, not how late and halting were the early efforts.) Myer appears to have assumed that signal code differed among armies, and didn't diect exchanges of tech info, altho some low-ranking indivs thought to contrary. Seems familiar?
