About this item


The file predominantly consists of telegrams and cypher messages regarding the transit of French military aircraft across India and Burma while en-route to Indochina. The messages contain requests for clearance, details of the planes in transit, their flight schedules, and any restrictions imposed by local authorities. A significant number are concerned with French air ambulances.

There is also some correspondence between the Burma Office and the Governor of Burma related to Burmese opposition to French military action in Indochina, and the difficulties this places the Government of Burma in granting authorisation for transit flights of French aircraft.

The main correspondents in the file are as follows: the Air Attaché to Paris, the Air Ministry, Air Headquarters (India), and Air Headquarters (Burma).
