British subject passports

Prior to 1 January 1949, the primary form of British nationality was that of a British subject.

British subject status was given to those born within the British Crown’s dominions and, broadly speaking, most British subjects will have become citizens of the UK and colonies (CUKC) or citizens of independent Commonwealth countries in 1949. Those that didn't became British subjects without citizenship.
