Default Transcribing the Broadmoor Files

Hello everyone,
I am working on transcribing James Kellys Broadmoor Files from the large amount of pictures I took while at the National Archives on out trip to England. I created this thread in hopes to reach out for some help every now and then when I get stuck over some illegible hand writing or unfamiliar abbreviating. Hopefully you won't mind and I thank you for any help you may be able to offer.

I am still searching for the signature which JM posted a few days ago, but have moved on. Now I'm finding an abbreviation I am unfamiliar with. Has anyone ever seen the abbreviation "CIR Cons" in any documents before? Its used in the sentence "... if he goes on well ever consideration will be given to the "CIR CES" of the case." Is it an abbreviation for circumstances? I've never seen that but it has appeared twice. The other time says "the "CIR CES" of the case should be given to the Captain into whose care he should be given".

Hi Ryan

"Circs" is the usual abbreviation for circumstances - if this doesn't seem to fit, show us a scan of the offending phrase and I'm sure we'll all have a go...

All the best

Dave

That's what I assumed. I just wanted to get a little reassurance! Thank you!

Hi Ryan

Fine, but if you do get stuck please don't hesitate to post a scanned image...can't honestly speak for anyone else but I personally love a handwriting challenge...and I suspect many others do too!

All the best

Dave

Hi Ryan

The British are fond of abbreviations and doctors and bureaucrats, of course, whether British or American, use abbreviations a lot as well. So you might have other questions as you continue on. We will be glad to help if we can. Good luck!

All the best

Chris
