Air Ministry, Directorate of Intelligence and related bodies: Intelligence Reports and Papers
This series consists of various intelligence reports, narratives, photographs and surveys of enemy capabilities and reports of operations carried out against the enemy and of interrogation of prisoners of war.
A substantial number of files relate to the Air forces and Commands of the United States Army Air Force. Also included are some records of the Joint Intelligence Bureau of the Ministry of Defence.
The Directorate of Intelligence was responsible for the organisation and co-ordination of all types of air intelligence - military, political and civil - at home and abroad, liaison with Air Attaches and Missions, and questions of security and censorship.
The organisations which, in addition to the Directorate of Intelligence, have been responsible for the records in this series include the Directorates of Air Tactics and Bomber Operations of the Department of the Chief of Air Staff, the Special Investigation Branch (reporting on war crimes), and various commands and other units at home and abroad.
