Anybody know how I can get one of these when they come out ?
I'd like to give as a gift to my sons.

Should have honoured him when he was alive. Typical once you are not needed and its all over you are trash. Is this another flag waving distraction for the muppets in power?

Isn’t this just the new £50 note, so any bank.

Find a bank branch that's open and ask for one?
I know you can wander into most Scottish banks and ask for English money and get a wad of 10s and 20s

You can buy coins from the royal mint direct but dunnoh if the BoE do similar for notes.

Alan Turing, while undoubtedly vital to the war effort, was only part of equation. It was Tommy Flowers that designed and built Colossus, buying the components with his own money because TPTB didn’t believe that valves would be reliable enough. The Bombe, Turing’s design, was a single purpose electro mechanical computer, whereas Colossus was electronic and programmable and is considered as the first electronic programmable computer

On or after June 23rd you should be able to simply walk into a bank and exchange a wad of your scruffy fivers for one.
