Since the pioneering work of W. G. Bade [3, 4] a great deal of work has been done on bounded Boolean algebras of projections on a Banach space ([11, XVII.3.XVIII.3], [21, V.3], , , , , , ]17], , , ). Via the Stone representation space of the Boolean algebra, the theory can be studied through Banach modules over C(K), where K is a compact Hausdorff space. One of the key concepts in the theory is the notion of Bade functionals. If X is a Banach C(K)-module and x ε X, then a Bade functional of x with respect to C(K) is a continuous linear functional α on X such that, for each a in C(K) with a ≥ 0, we have
(i) α (ax) ≥0,
(ii) if α (ax) = 0, then ax = 0.
