This chronological series contains the memoranda of the Standing Group (SG). With the exception of the SGMs produced when the SG met in Paris from 25 to 28 April 1956 (reference SGM(Paris) 1-56 to 4-56), all were produced by the secretariat of the SG in Washington. These memoranda were often used to transmit: -decisions of the Military Committee (MC) and the SG to the NATO high commands and the SG agencies -instructions and interpretations resulting from these decisions The first SG memorandum (SGM) was published on 11 October 1949 and the last on 24 October 1966. After the Standing Group was disbanded in 1967, the chronological series of Military Committee memoranda (MCMs) succeeded the SGMs.
