B/A/W91 Bailiff's Files and Papers - these papers were found at the end of the Bailiff's War Files Collection, they have not been numbered and sorted by the Bailiff as the rest of the files in this collection were. The files relate to the period just prior to the German occupation, the occupation itself and the liberation of Jersey. As the files were not initially sorted by the Bailiff they have been catalogued in date order. Some of these papers may have once been part of the larger collection but were separated at the time of theft of the papers.
B/A/W92 German Administration Files: Four files were found with the Bailiff's files which appear to be part of the German Administration's filing. This section also includes other papers which appear to be part of the German filing system.
