Joint Services Command and Staff College Library - Online Archive

I was carrying out a routine Webb search recently trying to see if either SS 135 (Instructions for the Training of Divisions for Offensive Action) or SS143 (Instructions for the Training of Platoons for Offensive Action) were available in full online, if you know where I can access these online please let me know.  In the process I stumbled on an online research resource, the UK Defence Academy’s ‘Joint Services Command and Staff College Library - Archive’, that was new to me and may be of interest to you.

Currently the archive contains primary material covering:

This looks like a resource that you may wish to bookmark and followed especially if it lives up to its promise:

‘The JSCSC Library has a large collection of archives, the majority of which were inherited from the Army Staff College, Camberley.  A smaller collection was inherited from the Royal Air Force Staff College, Bracknell. The archive collection of the Royal Naval College, Greenwich, was dispersed to other Naval establishments prior to the creation of the JSCSC.’

A programme of scanning the more important archive documents has been started and will continue as resources permit.  These scans will be made available on these webpages.’
