Repeated to C.in C. French Admiral.
Source Note: CCy, UK-KeNA, Adm. 137/1437. Below the message is the initials “DOH,” which presumably is the name of the decoder. In a column along the left margin is a list of those to whom it was routed: “First Lord[;] 1st S.L.[;] Sir A.K.Wilson[;] D.C. 2[;] D.I.D. 2.” These were in order: First Lord of the Admiralty Sir Edward H. Carson; First Sea Lord Sir John R. Jellicoe; Sir Arthur K. Wilson, a former First Sea Lord and advisor to the Admiralty on matters of strategy; Chief of Staff Director of Operations Division VAdm. Henry F. Oliver; Director, Intelligence Division Capt. William E. Hall.” The number “2” after the latter two presumably means they were sent two copies of the message.
