Among the appointments to the Royal Air Force announced by the Air Ministry are 34 officers for Transjordania, Palestine Iraq and other points in the Middle East.


Efforts are being made by the military in Palestine to trace the origin of ammunition used by the Arab attackers in the recent outbreak, the Jerusalem correspondent of the London “Daily Mail” reports. The ammunition was made to fit British rifles, but does not bear a British mark. It is believed this ammunition was supplied from an outside source, the correspondent writes, in order to discredit the British by the suggestion that anyone killed by this ammunition was shot by the British soldiers.
