An interesting web site, which also contains the following
crypto-relevant statement:

        Speakers of such Native American languages as Navajo, Choctaw
        and Cheyenne served as radio operators, know as Code Talkers,
        to keep communications secret during both World Wars. Welsh
        speakers played a similar role during the Bosnian War.

Does anyone know anything more about this use of Welsh?
