Scope and content
Colonial Office 753 consists of a register of out-letters from CO 616, Dominions (War of 1914-1918), Original Correspondence. CO 753 provides the most nearly complete chronological list available of the correspondence despatched to dominion and colonial governments from Britain during the First World War and its classification and registry procedures appear to be the usual procedures. Acquired are microfilm copies of the entire class, microfilm reels B-4024 to B-4026. These Registers indicate the office of the person to whom the letter was despatched, the date, the despatch number, the subject of the correspondence and the registry number of the related in-letter. Although CO 753 may be used as a finding aid for CO 616, the researcher may find the indexes to idividual volumes of CO 616 more useful in locating specific information than these contemporary registers. The following list provides the register volume number as well as the appropriate volumes of filed correspondence and the dates covered by CO 753: CO 753, vol. 1, 1914, filed correspondence: CO 616, vols. 1-18; CO 753, vol. 2, 1915, filed correspondence: CO 616, vols. 19-52; CO 753, vol. 3, 1916, filed correspondence: CO 616, vols. 53-67; CO 753, vol. 4, 1917-1918, filed correspondence: CO 616, vols. 68-80; CO 753, vol. 5, 1919, filed correspondence: CO 616, vols. 81-82.
