Travelling Staff Perpetual Registers

Scope and Content

These registers contain a list of travellers with ticks each month to indicate continued employment and notes concerning military service during the periods 1914-1919 and 1939-1944. Some registers include, at the front of the file, a list of Divisional Sales Managers, District Sales Supervisors, Agents, Travellers and Assistants. From 1921 the age, status (traveller, Assistant or Gleaner), name of sales ground and date of appointment of each employee are also given, and at the end of the file there are additional explanatory notes, arranged chronologically, and a summary of the numbers of travellers, etc, and people in training each month. From 1934 to 1936 an additional section gives details of special work assigned to travellers each week and the names of their assistants, possibly connected with a reorganisation of sales grounds.
