Looking for National Archives document

I'm a graduate student working on a database of the global arms trade in the 19th century. We have made extensive use of the CUST series in the National Archives at Kew. They have been a fantastic source. But it seems that the person who took photos for us ommitted 1821 and 1822, and these two years have become of great interest to my PI. We were planning on having a colleague go dig up the relevant years next time they were at Kew, but given the COVID lockdowns that's been delayed indefinitely.

1921: A Watershed Year, Brilliantly Recounted by David Stafford

On critical years in the life of Winston Churchill there is little debate. Of course, as he said, “Nothing surpasses 1940.” But there are other years leading up to that pinnacle.

It was filled with crucial events—political and personal—that critically affected Churchill’s later life.  For more, please see
