The numbering (SZE 1-12) indicates that there may originally have been 12 rolls of film, but SZE 11 no longer exists.

Some sections of the negatives have not been developed because there are no images on the negative or because any images present are severely damaged or indistinct.</p> <p>These images are also available to view in date order here [<a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='http://www.nri.cam.ac.uk/JN_wartime_photos/sze.htm'>link</a>] .</p> <p>Further information and resources are available about Needham's time in China from 1943-1946 as Director of the Sino-British Science Cooperation Office here [<a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='http://www.nri.cam.ac.uk/JN_wartime.htm'>link</a>] .</p>
