Some questions regarding to WWII German naming of documents

Post by cobralion »

Take three examples:

Example 1:
Awa A IA 100/40 g.Kdos
Unterlagen und Richtlinien zur Bestimmung der Hauptkampfentfernung und der Geschoßwahl

Example 2:
B. Nr. 1. SkI. I Op. 410/41 Gkdos Chefs.
Seekriegsleitung Operation Order for Rheinübung

Example 3:
K/K III A Nr. 231/41 g.Kdos.
Vergleich zwischen "Richelieu" und "Bismarck"

What confused me is that did German have a similar tradition like UK ("ADM" for "Admiralty, and Ministry of Defence, Navy Department") (in this instance, "Awa A IA" served as abbreviations) or they simply naming 100th file in 1940 as "100/40"?
