Note translation: Judging by our internal archive system this file will only in exceptional cases have photographs from later than the First World War. With Bamum, however, the situation is complicated. The Basel Mission was expelled from Bamum in 1916,. But some missionaries - including Miss A. Wuhrmann - returned to Bamum and what became French Cameroon in the service of the Paris Evangelical Mission. Technically, therefore, some of the Bamum pictures may date from after 1918 if they are not firmly dated to 1916 or earlier. (PJ 04.2001).
