British Admiralty[edit]

British Admiralty links here--but is not explained at all. Could you please add that? I'm looking for "British Admiralty" as of the early 19th century--what exactly does that refer to? Thanks, Ibn Battuta 18:26, 10 May 2007 (UTC)

The subject of this article is the British Admiralty. That is Admiralty = British Admiralty. So, if you are looking for info on the British Admiralty, you'll find it here (although admittedly, there is not much on the 19th century). The other meanings of Admiralty (ex. Russion, Dutch, etc.) can be found on the disambiguation page.--SteveMtl 20:51, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

Robert Blackborne[edit]

I'm wondering if anyone has any specifics on Robert Blackborne, a friend of Samuel Pepys who served as secretary of the Admiralty under the Protectorate in the 1650's and later as secretary of the old East India Company? Many thanks in advance!MarmadukePercy (talk) 19:40, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

D.N.1 or D.N.I[edit]

Looking through my grandfathers WWII service record I see that he was based in the Admiralty with D.N.1 or D.N.I. I can't find any information about this section - does anyone know what it is ? Thanks 80.189.16.70 (talk) 18:27, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
