Forces War Records recently went to the National Archives, Kew to study some of the Telegrams sent just before the start of the Great War.          

We will be posting the transcription of the telegrams as they happened 100 years ago.

From Archive Reference:  ADM137-11 Telegrams between Admiralty and C-in-C China.

 

To C-in-C China, Hong Kong

To S.N.O Singapore.

Date: 4.8.1914

Sent: 6.50pm


Foreign Office cyphers G and M having been compromised they are not to be used for message that may be of use to the enemy.  Great care should be exercised in acting upon messages received in the cyphers.
