More about the East African Command in the fall of 1941

The East African Command had responsibility for operations in the following countries:
  • Ethiopia
  • Eritrea (the Official History says "for a short time only")
  • Italian Somaliland
  • British Somaliland
  • Kenya
  • Zanzibar
  • Tanganyika
  • Uganda
  • Nyasaland
  • Northern Rhodesia
The command headquarters was located in Nairobi, Kenya. The commander was assisted by a "Chief Political Officer", a diplomat.
This is based on the account in Vol.II of the Official History
