Dates of existence



The AC/27 chronological series contains the records of the Working Party on Ammunition Production and Off-shore Procurement. The Working Party was created by the North Atlantic Council on 31 July 1952 to determine a means for information about each delegation’s ammunition supply, which had already been passed to the United States Military Assistance Advisory Group (MAAG), to be provided to the International Staff. The meetings of the Working Party were chaired by Mr. D.L. Hopkins, Assistant Secretary General for Production and Logistics, and were attended by a representative of the delegations for Belgium, Denmark, France, Italy, the United States, Netherlands, Norway, Turkey and the United Kingdom. Also in attendance were members from the International Staff from a relevant division and Colonel D.O. Monteith, the Standing Group Liaision Officer. The Working Party held its lone meeting on the 31 July 1952 and discussed how the MAAG were willing to help the involved countries prepare the information and assist in supplying the information if necessary. Furthermore, the Working Party deliberated on the urgency of the information and what specific requirements each country had to make. Two information requirements were made evident: the deficiencies of all items of ammunition and the factual data regarding production capacity.
