Admiralty Fleet Orders

Since the inception of the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) in July 1911, through to 1976, the promulgation, amendment and cancellation of administrative policies were routinely issued in the form of Navy Orders (later Commonwealth Naval Orders). Often instructions promulgated in Australian Navy Orders made reference to Admiralty Fleet Orders published by the Royal Navy, such was the close relationship between the RAN and RN at that time. This selection of Admiralty Fleet Orders has been declassified, digitised and placed in the public domain as part of the Sea Power Centre - Australia's ongoing digitisation program to compliment Australian Naval Orders that can also be found in digital format on the RAN's web page.
