Photograph of Baghdad, Iraq, taken November 1922


King Faisal at Colour Ceremony in courtyard of Palace. H.M. was to present colours to two of the new regiments in the courtyard of the palace and Col. Joyce had invited me to come and see.I also photographed.... The big court was full of troops - it?s the place where he was enthroned last year. Mrs Joyce and I took up a commanding position with our cameras....After he had presented the colours....he stood on a dais while all the troops marched past, and a very creditable army it was, after a year?s making.
