This Day in History July 4, 1943

I thought it was interesting to read about what happened in Iraq in WW2. Some British units were also sent to Iraq for a brief period before going on to Italy. The magazine Aviation History had a good article about RAF attacks on the Germans at Habbinya in May 1941. They were flying old bombers and Hawker biplanes.

(In the center is the symbol of the II Corps,

a Mermaid with sword and shield and below

is the shield of the British 8th Army.)

After their outstanding performance at the Battle of Cassino, the British

authorized the soldiers of the II Polish Corps to wear the British 8th Army

insignia sleeve patch.
