    I’m preparing an History Doctorate about Syria and Iraq affairs during WWII. I have worked for that within french archives, but also within the Australian War memorial archives, the US NARA archives and overall the British National Archives at Kew. To illustrate my thesis I need to find some pictures. I have seen yours photos. Would it be possible to use them for that? And if yes, could it be possible to obtain from you hi def photos? And last but not least, would you have more photos on this subject? Or also about Syria campaign in june-july 1941? Naturally, I will source your photos. Thanks for your help.
    Best regards,
    Jean-Louis Promé
