    signature and abbreviation on Tsingtao-related document / Japanese-British treaty

    Recommended Posts

    Dear all,

    I’m currently evaluating several documents from the Archive of the British Foreign Office for my PhD.

    Two signature and the abbreviation are causing some headache to me, because I cannot read/understand them.

    Any ideas?

    a)     [XX]. Oliver [?], D.I.D. 6.8.14 ?

    b)     A C D [XXX] C. O S. [Chief of Staff?] 7/8/14 ?

    FYI- these two documents related to an information exchange regarding the Japanese assistance to the British Government during the war in Tsingtao.  

    Thanks for your help and br,

    Meanwhile, I could solve this point.

    First signature is related to Sir Henry Francis Oliver, Director of Naval Intelligence, the second one is from Admiral of the Fleet, Sir Frederick Charles Doveton Sturdee as Chief of War Department of the British Admirality.


    BR Chris
