The bulk of the Admiralty records filmed for the Australian Joint Copying Project were grouped by the Public Record Office under the heading 'Admiralty and Secretariat'. The classes included in this section contain records of the Admiralty Office up to 1832 and of the Secretary's Department of the reorganised Board of Admiralty after that date. The types of records microfilmed include correspondence, lists of ships, and log books.

A digitised copy of Part 7 of the Handbook is available online.
