December Document of the Month

The following document, which is the document of the month for December, was identified by one of our staff carrying out preservation measures on the ACE Subject Files (Internment Camp Records from the National Emergency of 1939 - 1946).  

On closer inspection of the file (CP 12), the Chief Medical Officer from the Curragh Camp (in response to a complaint received) reports on the 20th June 1944 to the Adjutant, Curragh Command, that  "practically every internee increases in weight while interned.....". 

While this file and similar general files are available within the Military Archives reading room, a large part of this collection is made up of individual internee files, which are available to that individual's next of kin only. For further information please contact the duty archivist by any of the means listed here.
