RAF Habbaniya Daily Intelligence Bulletins

My father kept copies of the daily intelligence bulletins that were issued to RAF Habbaniya during the battle of Iraq in May 1941. Most of the copies are marked ‘Officers Mess’, so presumably my father sequestered them – or possibly he was given them in order to write the semi-official history of ‘C’ Squadron (of No. 4 FTS) during the battle of Habbaniya, which he co-authored with Allan Haig.
