A volume of meeting minutes and reports from the Joint Intelligence Sub-Committee (JIC).

The JIC members discussed a vast range of international and domestic issues in their meetings. This file documents the formation of a sub-committee to examine air warfare in the Spanish Civil War and includes a series of reports on the effects of aerial attacks and bombing raids on ground troops, shipping, urban areas, and fuel oil storage depots, as well as observations on various methods of anti-aircraft defence.
