DIRECTORATE OF TELECOMMUNICATIONS
page 1 of 1
Throughout England and Wales the Directorate remit included installation and maintenance of communications and other specialist equipment relating to the Civil Defence network.
In 1986 a notice was circulated by the Directorate’s Head of Administration and Finance, Mr Eddie Guy, calling for volunteers for administrative duties in the regional government headquarters, which would be activated in England and Wales in an emergency. Although the document was designated as ‘Restricted’ at the time, it is reproduced for historical purposes as the Civil Defence network was disbanded in later years and the information relating to government wartime planning is believed to be available in whole or part elsewhere on the internet.
