Directorate of Telecommunications
As with any organisation, the management structure changed over the fifty-five year period. More will be added as they are uncovered!
During the 1940's, the Directorate continued to evolve from its inception in 1939, to an organisation with a regional presence in England and Wales within two years of the cessation of World War II in 1945. A set of documents written between 1942 and 1947 that outline a brief history of the Directorate and its structure at the time have recently come to light, which give an interesting insight to the organisation and the issues facing management at that time.
The documents were typed on thin paper, which has since faded with time. The main report also has many hand written amendments. Collectively, this may make it difficult to read. However, for those of you who are interested in the organisation history and structure in the early days, this should give an overview of life during the 1940's.
Three other documents detailing regional or organisation structures are listed in the table below.
