With reference to your letter No. 8/54 dated the 18th April, 1935

explained to you verbally, that you give the oil concession about which the
Anglo-Persian Oil Company have been negotiating to that company.
(b) The protection from His Majesty's Government, as already explained to
you verbally, will be external, i.e., against serious and unprovoked attacks which
may be made on your territory from outside your frontier. This protection, as I
explained to you verbally on my last visit, and with which you agreed, naturally
refers to serious incursions, and not to small raids. In this connexion, therefore.

your own defence and for maintaining order within your own frontier.

able to take action swiftly and effectively when they have arrived, it is necessary
that the Royal Air Force should have certain facilities in your territory. These
facilities should be as follows! Freedom to use wireless telegraphy when necessary,
since, as you will realise, the essence of defence by aircraft is speedy communication.
Some landing grounds will also be necessary as well as arrangements for storing
petrol and other requirements necessary in order that the aircraft may take effective
action Royal Air Force aircraft and officers will also require to visit Qatar from
time to time whenever the Air Officer Commanding thinks suitable in order to

in collaboration with you which will be necessary for them in making their plans
for your defence.
