Biographical history

Archival history

The Aide-de-Camp was a military officer responsible for the secretarial duties to the Governor during the British Rule in Malta. The office of the Aide-de-Camp managed the day to day preparations for all official and social events of the Governor, and thus the records in this fonds hold important information and commemorative material about the various official events, visits to villages, schools and other institutions. When Malta got its Republican status in 1974 the President became head of state. However, the office of Aide-de-Camp exists to the present day, although the current records are administered as records of the President (OPR in the National Archives fonds) and not under the ADC. - Head Office, Rabat
