Capture or destruction of the cable and radio stations would prevent this. It would also contribute to the economic war against Germany. Without the cables, Germany would have to rely on the long-distance transmitter at The Information Network and the Outbreak of War 23 Nauen or attempt to pass information secretly through British or allied cables.

70 Fitting out new ships would have involved custom construction and specialized equipment, which would have been a difficult diversion of manpower and tonnage the country could have ill afforded. Indeed, Britain lost two important cable ships in European waters during the early part of the war, the Monarch to a mine off the straits of Dover in 1915, and the Dacia to a U-boat off Madeira as the ship returned from cable work in 1916. With British cable ships gone or seriously depleted, German raids on the remaining cables would have had more lasting effect.

Under Hall’s leadership, Room 40 moved beyond simply analyzing intercepted German tactical naval communications to examining commercial, diplomatic, and military traffic of every kind.
