The code P175 followed by a letter was given to PTA items in the pre-1994 list. 175addn was given to items found in the Archive in 1994 but not included in the list. These references have been retained under the Alt Ref No. field. Items acquired since 1994 have accession numbers. Apart from the few administrative and financial records that have survived there are no coherent record series and arrangement decisions have therefore been taken by the Archivist based on type of record and ease of retrieval by users.
