    It would be appropriate to supply links to tools you use, such as this codebook tool you refer to.

    I have started. But so far all I get in the plain text is a load of gibberish. I'm pretty postitive that everything is set up.

    Please double check your original settings.

    Also, what do you mean by use the word LiLi??

    I also have begun. His message is very confusing. It was coded improperly, but I am making progress.

    I've been able to translate these sections. Note where I've broken them up, at the beginning of each break, reset the rotors to LILI. This last section is being a PITA...

    Yes I have a feeling I was on the right track and then the plain text descends into gibberish - something to do with a Corvette and a battle?

    I believe the list of names was decoded correctly, but without knowing what names I'm to be looking for it's difficult to separate them.

    I have the Enigmasim program and the codebook tool but to decode this properly I need to know which model of enigma machine is being used.

    Thanks,

    It should be clearer. This is the codebook he is using. Download it, flip to October 1942, find the entry for the 6th and use the settings found there.
