About this item


This file contains Bahrain government budget reports and other detailed financial records for the years 1941 to 1948. The documents in the file include details of goverment revenue and expenditure and discussion related to the size of the allowances received by the Al Khalifa family.

Of note are folios 41 and 42, on which financial details from 1943/44 have been printed on the reverse of two unrelated posters - presumably due to a paper shortage during war time.
