When the country was Northern Rhodesia, every new government employee was issued with a copy of "General Orders".

If you should go to


click on "Cil-Col" in the left hand column, then scroll down to near the bottom of the List, you will see the name "Collard, F.E.L.H."

Now, Mr. Collard was one such Civil Servant, and when he became an employee of the Northern Rhodesian Government, he was issued with a copy.  Under the Regulations, he should have returned this copy, failure to do so will have made him liable to a payment of £1.1s.

This document was scanned by his son, Edward Collard, for which, many thanks.  It is being transcribed (all 104 pages), and will be shown on here in due course - the sole purpose of the WebSite.

You will see Collard's name faintly inscribed at the top right of the Cover.


The sole purpose of this WebSite is to make this historical document, the NRG General Orders, available on the Internet, as searchable text, so that search engines can find it.  Apart from the "text" version shown here, the document is also available as a "Facsimile" in searchable .pdf files (click on the LIBRARY tab on the left) or as WORD documents - just ask (CONTACT US Tab on the left).


We concede that the format displayed is not the prettiest - but that is not the point.  This WebSite is provided FREE, but is restricted in the number and the size of the files that may be uploaded.


Please note that the original has headings in the right hand margin, but these have been incorporated into the text by the OCR software;


1. (a) The Civil Service is divided for the purpose of                     Classes of 

           appointments into three classes—                                    appointments

           Class I—The Unified Services ;

... actually appears continuous on this WebSite as:-

1. (a) The Civil Service is divided for the purpose of appointments into three classes—    Classes of appointments
(i) Class I—The Unified Services ;
