This series contains files of the Civil Defence Department from the following file series:

  • CDI: Civil Defence Intelligence

They also deal with regional organisation (including minutes of the conferences of regional directors) and the Civil Defence Corps.

The papers in this series are arranged by file reference number within each symbol series, and the series are arranged in alphabetical order. The inclusion of a date preceding a file number (as in CDA (1960) 3/2/7) 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 CDA (1960) 3/2/7 would be CDA/60 3/2/7.
