This volume contains the minutes of the Standing & Finance Committee of the British Legion (Kenya) from the years 1944 - 1949. There are minutes from the 1954 Delegates Conference included loose at the front of the ledger.
This committee oversaw and audited income and expenditure for the organisation, so the volume contains numerous balance sheets. These relate particularly to fundraising events and memorial ceremonies, but also include staff salaries and wages, office furniture, upkeep of properties and managing publicity.
Of particular interest are the discussions surrounding the impact of the Kenya Emergency (Mau Mau Uprising) on the Legion’s activities, such as the operation of British Legion Park.
