What is known about Kamer 14 (Room 14) at Bandung, Java? It was intercepting and probably decrypting Japanese coded messages - Diplomatic (?) Naval (?) and Army (?).

When Batavia fell, Lieutenant-Commander Leo Brouwer RNN, a Japanese linguist was evacuated to Colombo, and joined the JN25 team at the Far Eastern Combined Bureau (FECB) there. He may have moved to Bletchley Park, where Hut 7 worked on Japanese codes. Prewar, John Tiltman at Bletchley Park had made a break into an earlier version of JN25 the IJN code in 1939.
