Standing War Order No. 104
Special Neutrality Regulations:
  a) Ireland forbids, on pain of internment, encroachment on its territorial waters by warships.
            With a view to maintaining Ireland's neutrality, the prohibition is to be strictly respected.
  b) Sweden's claim to extend her territorial waters to 4 sea miles from the coast is not recognized by Germany.
            Only the 3 miles limit is recognized.
            Violations of the 3 mile zone are to be avoided.
