The Association of British Malaya was founded in 1920, replacing the Straits Settlements Association which had existed since 1868. In the light of changing circumstances it became the British Association of Malaya, the British Association of Malaysia and the British Association of Malaysia and Singapore.
The photos were deposited with the Royal Commonwealth Society in 1973 on the dissolution of the British Association of Malaysia and Singapore.
