AFO's Admiralty Fleet Orders,
« on: 30 October 2018 06:11:39 pm »

Greetings All
     I wonder is there any place or even a collector who would be able to tell me what one of the AFO's mentioned, I have been looking for this particular AFO for many years, but as we all know these are a thing of the past, and I guess dead and buried, in my time in the Navy I had access to AFO's on a daily bases, but what happened to these when they were no longer required,
Any help would be most appreciated as to a place or collector,
Tom Grant

A.F.O's were replaced by D.C.I's in the 1960's.   Copies of AFO's are now held by the National Archives at Kew
