Armistice message

 
 
RAF phonogram from the Vice Admiral, Dover Patrol to the Officer Commanding 5th Group giving details of the Armistice, 1918. A phonogram was a form of telegram, where half of the message’s journey was made by telephone and the other half by telegram. In this instance, the message originated with a telephone call by the Vice Admiral, Dover Patrol, which was then typed out and delivered as a telegram notice.
