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,

Chris

No ideas? 😢

Or maybe any ideas, whom I could ask / contact about the names?

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.

My first thoughts were 'Directorate [of] ???'  and 'Chief of Staff', so not too far off what Gensui has said.  Well done on finishing that mammoth task!
