Nimrod is the most famous of Elgar’s Enigma Variations, so it is appropriate that I can write:
In this, digits have been consistently replaced by letters, different letters representing different digits, with the letter O representing the digit zero.
What is the 6-digit number represented by ENIGMA?
According to my diary, this was the first Enigma puzzle I programmed a solution for when it was published. Subsequently I only did the puzzles sporadically until Enigma 1482, when I started coding solutions every week. Since putting up my solutions on this site I have been working to provide solutions to previous Enigma puzzles that I didn’t solve at the time of publication. Currently there are 342 Enigma puzzles (and solutions) on the site.
