Hinaidi Cantonment - Site Plan (1932)

Shown below is the provisional site plan (1932) for the Hinaidi Cantonment, including the layout of the RAF Hinaidi air base and the Ma' Asker Al Raschid RAF Cemetery (Hinaidi RAF Peace Cemetery) Note that the concept plans were fairly accurate, especially the service roads etc, though many detailed changes were made with regards the placement and size of the actual buildings, hangars etc. The extent to which the construction of the Hinaidi Cantonment remained faithful to the original site plan can be seen in the 2019 Google Maps aerial photograph of southern Baghdad.
