About this record

Content

The file consists of two maps (folios 2-3) of Lower Mesopotamia and a printed report, compiled at Army Headquarters and published by the General Staff, India (Simla), concerning a plan of operations for the support of Muhammareh [Muḥammarah/Khorramshahr] in the context of the British conflict with the Ottoman Empire in Mesopotamia during the First World War. The printed report consists of two sections: the first entitled 'Section I.-Information' (folios 4-5) and the second 'Plan of Operations for the Support of Muhammareh' (folios 6-7). The second section is printed on thinner paper and appears to be a possible later addition to the report. The front cover includes the title of the report, a note on secrecy and 'Rules for the custody and disposal of secret documents' (folio 1).
