That's one of the first things popped in my head. This wide stable genius sure does know his history.

By the way Donald, where was YOUR father during World War II?

Force History



CHRONOLOGICAL HISTORY

OF THE IRAQ LEVIES

1940-1941- The Iraqi forces joined the Axis powers. The battle for Habbaniya took place. the force was increased by another 11,000 recruits, mostly Assyrian, but also Kurd and Yezidi.



1942- The force consisted of; H.Q, Depot, Specialist Assyrian companies, 40 service companies and a new parachute company, which consisted of 75% Assyrian and 25% Kurd. A disciplinary code was drawn up based largely on the Indian Army act. A ruling was also received from the embassy that under the existing treaty arrangements and Ordinances, it was lawful for all members of the British Forces to be subject to British, Indian or other Military Law.



1942 April 8th - A number 17 Assyrian company truck overturns at Quayara, North Iraq, No 2637 Pte Gewergis Yousiph was Killed and the driver No 1288 Yousip Youkhana received serious internal injuries and was hospitalised in Mosul.



1943- Force strength stood at; 166 British officers, 22 Assyrian companies, 5 Assyrian/Yizidi companies, 10 Kurdish companies, 4 Gulf Arab companies and 3 Baluchi companies. In addition, 11 Assyrian companies were serving in Palestine and 4 in Cyprus. The Parachute Company was embodied in the Royal Marine Commando and later were used in operations in Albania and Greece. 400 Assyrian joined from Syria, they were used in the specialist’s communication companies. Ex-officer Malik Yacou Ismail also joined as a RAB 200. The name of the force was changed to Royal Air Force Levies.



1944- After the invasion of Normandy, consideration was given to the post war strength of the Levies. Proposals were put forward cutting down the establishment to allow only for necessary numbers to protect RAF instillations in Iraq and Persia. November- an Assyrian mobile battalion was formed out of the existing companies and stationed at Habbaniya as a striking force, the parachute company being absorbed in this battalion.



1945- It was decided by Air ministry that post war strength should consist of 60 British officers and 1,900 other ranks. It was also decided that the RAF Regiment should take over command of the Levies and Army personnel would gradually be replaced by RAF personnel. Disbandment of companies started to meet the new establishment.

13. That's Google Translate

I tried to get the term "shit head" in both languages. The first German translation was for "asshole," so this one might have been the same result.

14. actually I speak Japanese

Actually Baka Yaro is ,correct especially for this situation. One could use "Aho" as well, however that is more often heard in Osaka Bin, or the dialect from Osaka. Its considered worse to use language wise as its more coarse and nasty.

15. Dōmo arigatō!

My parents were stationed in Japan in the late 40s, before I was born. So, what I lack in fluency I try to make up with enormous respect for the people and culture. And one day, I hope to visit that land.

Your guidance and understanding are appreciated.
