Yes. Dave Morton Ultra was the code given to the code books used to encrypt or decipher the codes. Ultra II was recovered by Walker. And I mentioned only the machine as being the Enigma. Never mentioned it as a code. Codes for German Naval transmissions as differed from the German Army or the Luftwaffe had their own pet names assigned from what I understand.
