Printed broadsheet announcing the unconditional surrender of the rebel forces, 30 April 1916.

This was published by British Headquarters Irish Command during the Easter Rising (1916). It details the unconditional surrender order of the Provisional Government signed by Patrick Pearse. It declares:

'In order to prevent the further slaughter of Dublin citizens, and in the hope of saving the lives of our followers now surrounded and hopelessly outnumbered, the members of the Provisional Government present at headquarters have agreed to an unconditional surrender, and the commandants of the various districts in the City and County will order their commands to lay down arms'.
