    Hello Sir,
    I am very interested by your photo collection about Habbaniya campaign in 1941. I’m working for my Doctorate in History on the French in Syria between june 1940 and december 1941 and I have a chapter about Irak affair. For that it would be very fine if you could share with me – by mail in hi-def – your photo collection about this subject (and of course also about Syria campaign if you have some photos about that) to illustrate my work. Thanks so much for your comprehension and your help.
    Best regards,
    Jean Promé
