Title: Home Office: Scientific Adviser's Branch and successors: OSA, SAC, SAF, SAG, SAN and SC Symbol Series Files

Registered files of the Scientific Adviser's Branch and its successors relating to the provision of scientific advice within the Home Office and to other Departments involved in civil defence, the sponsoring of scientific research, the training of scientific intelligence officers, the development of computer projects for scientific research, and liaison with civil defence regional scientific advisers. Subjects covered include the effects of radiation and bomb blasts, and equipment for fire fighting. Reports of the Branch are in HO 225- HO 229

Date: 1939-1992

The papers in this series are arranged under six subheadings (Office of the Scientific Adviser; Scientific Advisers, Chemical; Scientific Advisers, General; Scientific Advisers, Fire; Scientific Advisers, Nuclear and Scientific Research) and then by departmental file number. The inclusion of a date preceding a file number (as in SAN(1961) 3/1/1) indicates that the year in which the file was created was included in the file reference number. Thus the full departmental reference of a file listed as SAN(1961) 3/1/1 would be SAN/61 3/1/1.
