UK "Information Office for Naval Construction" 1945

apparently, the UK (together with other Western Allied nations?) set up this "Information Office for Naval Construction" in Germany in 1945 in order to learn all about German wartime naval construction and innovation.

Does anyone know if the records still exist and are available? Where?

Hi

I'm aware of a unit called Target Force (better known as T-Force) which was tasked with getting their
hands on German technology inc naval. T-Force itself arose from 30AU (Assault Unit) which was he brainchild
of Ian Fleming of James Bond fame.

There's a book by Sean Longden that details the units work in Germany and its operations in Italy and France'44

There are a few relevant file references at the UK National Archives in Kew, for example:
