Admiralty Guidelines papers

Our project partner, The National Archives, have discovered some fascinating primary research resources. These archive papers have been unearthed as part of our free archive training with The National Archives. 

The papers shown are the Admiralty Guidelines for the surrender of the German U-Boat fleet at Harwich in November 1918. The surrender was in accordance with the terms of the Armistice and the document covers the twelve points of instruction to be followed when accepting the surrender of the U-Boats. Of particular note is point 7/7 which details:

“That no infernal machines or booby traps of any sort are onboard”.

These papers are found at The National Archives collection reference ADM 137/2483.

The training days enable people to learn about research and archive techniques from the experts and then take these new skills back into the community. The training is part of our funded project from the Heritage Lottery Fund and is supported by lottery players.
