The following 'stray' piece registered outside the core period of 1938-45 has been allocated this code number: ADM 1/10089 (1936).

Note that many pieces have been allocated more than one Code, and therefore maybe described under a different Code (e.g. ADM 1/15751 has been allocated the Codes 5, 21 and 54, but is only listed in the on-line catalogue under Code 5). This is much more likely to be the case with the later Code numbers. To view all pieces under a specific Code, readers should do a 'key-word' search on the online catalogue entering the relevant Code number (in this case 85).
