Default ADI.12 document lists on AFHRA microfilm A5406

Hello to One & All,

to expand on what has been written above, here is a summary to exactly what is held:

The document lists are reproduced on AFHRA microfilm roll number A5406, having been filmed from the original folders.

Frames 582-690 - decimal 512.619B-40 - ADI(K) Documents lists 1-14, 1944

Frames 691-1227- decimal 512.619B-41 - ADI(K) Documents Lists 1-62, 1945 (missing 1, 2, 6, 7, 10, 11, 12, 29, 32)*

Frames 1228-1401 - decimal 512.619B-42 - ADI(K) Documents Lists 63-166, 1945 (missing all of 63-147, 151, 157, 158, 159, and 165)

Frames 1402-1691 - decimal 512.619B-43 - ADI(K) Documents Lists 167-201, 1946

Frame 1692 - index to entire film

* there appears to never have been 1945 reports 1-14. Nr. 14/1944 was followed by 15/1945 (the latter covering the period 20/12/44 to 16/01/45), and there is nothing between 1-14 for 1945 on the microfilm

So, as can be seen, there was a total of 201 lists that were issued. Of this total 91 lists, or just under half, are missing from the AFHRA collection and are not on the microfilm.



PS - for the record, here are the corresponding references for the same lists at The National Archives, Kew, London:

AIR 40/1180 A.D.I.(K) captured German documents lists: 1-14/44 and 15-35/45 1944 Oct.-1945 May
AIR 40/1181 A.D.I.(K) captured German documents lists: 30-73/45 1945 May - Aug
AIR 40/1182 A.D.I.(K) captured German documents lists: 121-164/45 1945 Oct.- Dec
AIR 40/1183 A.D.I.(K) captured German documents lists: 165/45 and 166-201 1945 Dec.-1946 May

So it seems that a number of the lists (nos. 74-120) made in the period Aug-Oct 1945 may be missing from the collections at both TNA and AFHRA...
