Recent releases at The National Archives

Copies of typescripts of two versions of the Zimmermann Telegram. They include comments in Admiral Hall's writing, reading respectively: 'Main line - not exposed' and 'Inland cable on American soil - this was the one handed to Dr Page and exposed by the President'. The file also includes photocopies taken from HW 7/8 of the original manuscript decodes (in Nigel De Grey's handwriting) which led to these typescripts.
