Introduction to the Register of Donated Items and Property of the Sir Henry Royce Foundation.

The purpose of this Register is to properly record, and maintain, a list of all items donated to, and acquired by, the Sir Henry Royce Foundation, Australia (SHRFA).

Items acquired by the Foundation are included in the Register under the category of Property.

Every item will bear a unique Accession Number which will consist of a Code Letter followed by a chronological Item Number and in some cases a Sub Number where a particular donation contains a number of separate items. The Accession Number will be written on the item or attached to the item on a sticker..
