Administrative history

The General Allenby Chapter held their first meeting on February 13, 1918. They were named after Field Marshall Edmund Henry Hynman Allenby, 1st Viscount Allenby (1861-1936). He fought in the Second Boer War and in World War I, commanding the Egyptian Expeditionary Force in the capture of Palestine in 1917. He served as the High Commissioner for Egypt and Sudan from 1919 to 1925. The chapter's motto was: "Faithful in Service, Fide ete Labore" [Loyalty by Toil]. The General Allenby Chapter was disbanded in 1968.
