Name of the country[edit]

The full name for British Somaliland was the British Somaliland Protectorate. - (203.211.77.225 (talk) 07:28, 16 October 2009 (UTC))

Currency of the British Somaliland Protectorate[edit]

The currency of the British Somaliland Protectorate was NOT the Pound Sterling. It was the East African shilling, which had replaced both the East African florin, and the East Africa and Uganda Protectorates rupee. - (203.211.77.225 (talk) 07:28, 16 October 2009 (UTC))

but in the article for the Dervish State, it says that it was disestablished in 1920,
