South Persia and the War 1916-1918 (lantern lecture, London, England, 18 April 1921)

Notes

The set originally comprised 47 slides; 24 were destroyed in 1951 because the images were faded.

A few of the slides are numbered, but otherwise the order in which the slides are shown here does not necessarily correspond to their showing order in the original 1921 lecture.
