Dates of existence



This chronological series contains the working memoranda of the Standing Group (SG). These documents were prepared by the SG/MC secretariat in Washington.
They were notes or requests concerning draft memoranda or messages at annex.
SGWMs were submitted for information, revision or approval:

  • to a particular group in the SG structure
  • to NATO nations which were not members of the SG (i.e. other than the United States, the United Kingdom and France)
  • to a NATO official (often a member of the high command)

SGWMs were sometimes used as drafts of Military Committee memoranda (MCM).
