Archival Justice

Archival Justice:  Operation Legacy in the Caribbean

This website makes documents taken from the Caribbean (under Operation Legacy) accessible to researchers who specialize in the study of the Caribbean. 

These documents are now housed in The National Archives of the United Kingdom. 

They are listed as the “Migrated Archives” and are part of  the FCO 141 series.

The work being done is ongoing.

As documents are processed, brief descriptions will be released and copies of the documents will be made available online in accordance with copyright law.
