Remembered Today:

Location found for CDS 21 Notes on protection against poisonous gases


Recommended Posts

Good morning everyone.

 

There is a copy of CDS 21 'Notes on protection against poisonous gases' (May 1915) in WO 95/2/9 Branches and Services: General Staff 1915 May 1 - 1915 May 7. http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/69ee99b440974a01964c5a90ba99adaa

 

This diary slice is 43 pages long, and the pamphlet is page 42 and 43. As discussed in several areas of the forum, WO 95 diaries are included on the free download list for registered users for the time being.

 

Has anyone found any other CDS or SS pamphlets in any other diaries that they have downloaded recently?

 

Regards

 

Adam

Also available as a download from  TNA. SS 184/1 is in WO 95-61-6, which also has correspondence regarding the rationale for producing the pamphlet series. SS 184/2 to /4 are in WO 95-61-7.

In case anyone is interested ,  SS 184/15  September 1918 is in TNA WO 95-62-4  and SS 184/16 October 1918 is in TNA WO 95-62-5. No further editions  are included in the latter file, despite it running to May 1919 rather than the Dec 1918 date given in the catalogue.
