 First World War
The Air Staff's proposals for the adoption of air power as the main striking force in supersession of active operations by land forces were accordingly submitted to the Committee of Imperial Defence in March 1920.
During this year regular military forces were not employed in field operations and the Air Force was used under military control with, on the whole, very satisfactory results, both the High Commissioner and the General Officer Commanding-in-Chief agreeing that it had proved its powers in several crises, and that the state of Iraq was satisfactory.
Air power is of vital concern to the Empire, and in Iraq, under the control of an air officer, further evidence is accumulating of its great potentialities.
