Admiralty: Historical Section: Records used for Official History, First World War
A collection of documents forming material for the official history of the First World War, arranged in three series, respectively from the Admiralty Secretariat, from commands and stations, and from Naval Staff. To them have been added other papers of varied origin, including War Diaries of the Royal Naval Division and papers of 'Room 40' (including copies of WirelessNews) and the Naval Intelligence Division and the Allied Naval Council (eg pieces 1663-1796).
The documents in this series were extracted from the Admiralty Record Office by the editors of the official histories and rearranged by them in a form which reflects the structure of those volumes.
