The series of PLIC/1 consists of 6,567 files that have been digitised in their entirety. The files consist of applications on a standard application form from individuals and businesses for compensation for damage to buildings and property, including loss of personal property sustained as a direct result of the fighting, or subsequently as a result of fire and looting. A number of applications have further correspondence and police reports attached. There is also a small number of architectural plans included with claims where a building was completely destroyed.
