  •    The Army in Mesopotamia advanced upon the town of Kut, a strategic port on the Tigris on the route to Baghdad. Due to the depredations of the climate, sand storms and accidents A Flight of 30 Squadron was soon reduced to only two serviceable aircraft. Nevertheless these two machines provided crucial strategic observations of enemy positions assisting in the capture of the town. Four more modern B.E.2cs arrived at Basra together with four pilots and these were shipped up to Kut by river barge. More info.
