Nyasaland: Department of Public Relations

Nyasaland

Department of Public Relations

The Department of Public Relations (Public Relations Office) was established in February 1949. The purpose of the department was to interpret the policy of the Government to the people of the protectorate; to act in an advisory and co-ordinating capacity for distributing information on the various development schemes; to keep in touch with public opinion and publicise the affairs of the Protectorate in Great Britain.

In July 1954, a general reorganisation of information services was undertaken in Nyasaland following the establishment of the Federal Information Department in Salisbury, Southern Rhodesia.

British Empire Service League

Bulawayo

The British Empire Service League (BESL) was originally formed in Rhodesia in 1918 as Comrades of the Great War. The BESL was also present in Northern Rhodesia and Nyasaland. The league, established by Lord Haig in the Dominions, was a counterpart of the Royal British Legion that was established in 1921 to support Service men and women, ex-serving personnel and their families.
