Please note that T 371/303 and T 236/382 are currently in place at The National Archives. Our cataloguing team will update the catalogue descriptions accordingly in order to rectify this error.

Please note that T 1/4847 and T 1/4852 have never been misplaced whilst on loan to a government department and that they are currently in place at The National Archives.

In May 2010 papers from T 1/4847 were discovered to have been incorrectly filed in T 1/4852. The papers were consequently removed from T 1/4852 and reunited with T 1/4847. The catalogue descriptions for these records were amended to recognise that this had taken place. The updated descriptions featured the word ‘misplaced’, hence why they were included in 25 records you identified despite never having been misplaced whilst on loan to a government department.
