Butterfield and Swire Staff

Scope and Content

Material relating to the employment and deployment of Butterfield & Swire staff, their welfare, pay and pensions can be found throughout the main Butterfield & Swire correspondence series JSII 2. Specialised staff files were also created, either by Butterfield & Swire or John Swire & Sons to deal with particular aspects of staff affairs. In some instances London placed correspondence on particular subjects concerning all or several of their interests in subject files and these can be found in JSSI 5. 5/2-5 cover various staff matters, including the Provident Fund, Agreements and Internees' problems, with sections devoted to Butterfield & Swire staff. Most of these files are from WWII and post-war period.
