This is the first glimpse of a magnificent bronze bust of Enigma codebreaker Alan Turing which will soon go on display at his former school.<br />
<br />
It has been fashioned by acclaimed sculptor David Williams-Ellis, who has previously commemorated the D-Day landings in sculpture for the Normandy Memorial Trust.<br />
<br />
The bust, which is just over life size, will stand on a plinth at Sherborne School in Dorset, where the genius mathematician and father of computer science was a pupil from 1926 to 1931.<br />
<br />
It will be unveiled in the autumn by Turing's nephew and fellow Sherborne School alumni, solicitor and author Sir John Dermot Turing.
