Series notes:
Alphabetical subject index to the "subject index with main headings" (AD331) which leads to the numerical card register (AD332). The numerical sequence cards (with 3 tiered numbers eg.7/4/1) give the Department's "transfer" number enabling the files to be found in ED183. The sequence for searching should be AD297 then AD331 then AD332 then ED183. Sometimes it is unnecessary to go to both AD297 or AD331. The object of searching these cards is to get to the Dept.s "transfer" (archive) number which is the only way to find files in ED183. Occasionally the Dept.s transfer no. is found on these cards - AD297. Files with the archive numbers 1 - 8000 are in ED 183. Files with numbers above 8000 are retained by the Department and permission must be obtained from the Department to access them.~
