Content and context

Sir Ralph Hone was born on 3 May 1896. He worked in Gibraltar and a number of countries in Africa, primarily Uganda. As well as being a practising barrister, he held a number of administrative legal positions, notably Attorney-General of Uganda. He was Vice President of the Royal Commonwealth Society. Hone died on 28 November 1992.

An album containing scenes in the Federation, probably by official photographers. Most of the prints measure 210 mm x 160 mm, though a few are slightly smaller, and all are excellent photographs.

Between 1959 and 1965 sixteen states and the British Colony of Aden joined to form the Federation of South Arabia. In 1965 Sir Ralph Hone and Sir Gawain Bell were appointed to make recommendations for a constitution for the Federation. They reported early in 1966, but the constitution never came into effect owing to the worsening situation in the area, culminating in the British withdrawal from Aden in 1967 and the creation of what is now the Peoples' Democratic Republic of Yemen.

This album was given to Sir Ralph Hone during his investigations and presented to the Library by him in April 1984.
