Teletype messages, June 1943


Messages sent between the USNCML in Dayton and the Naval Communications Annex at Nebraska Avenue, Washington

The text of messages, and the listing of messages sent between Dayton and Washington were a useful way to describe the struggle to get bombes up and running in the documentary Local DCB. They form a dramatic narrative of the successes and failures of the NCR and Navy crew in 1942 and 1943. I’m including some key pages here, along with the personnel roster and glossary at the beginning of the listing.

The pages presented here are found at the National Archives and Records dediCated-administration at Silver Springs, Maryland. They are from Record Group 38, Box 184.
