70 Squadron Royal Air Force
Page 6 of "An Introduction to Iraq" provides a brief history of 70 Squadron (one of the Royal Air Force squadrons to be based at RAF Hinaidi during the inter-war years). At the time of publication (August 1935) the commanding officer of 70 Squadron was Wing Commander William Sowrey, DFC, AFC. The photograph is a view of the airfield at RAF Hinaidi, looking north-west from the main take-off / landing area towards the hangars used by 70 Squadron and 55 Squadron. Sapper Road runs vertically on the left side of the photograph.
