Administrative / biographical background:

Uganda became an independent sovereign country in October 1962, at which time a British High Commission was established in Kampala. Britain broke off diplomatic relations with Uganda in July 1976, at which time the High Commission was closed down. A British interests section was maintained in the French embassy in Uganda until June 1977, when it too was closed. Following the overthrow of President Amin in 1979, diplomatic relations between Britain and Uganda were re-established, and the High Commission reopened in April of that year.
