RAF Habbaniya Association

The Association has been formed for various purposes, including:

Recording the history of this unique RAF Station, both official and of the experiences of those who served and lived there;

Presenting the history in such forms as possible at various times, hopefully culminating in a published account;

Maintaining an archive;

Bringing together all those who served at, lived on or experienced the station for the purpose of fellowship and reminiscence (service pals is an apt description);

Preserving the record of the 289 British and Commonwealth personnel, civilians (including wives and children) who still lie buried in the RAF Cemetery there and endeavouring to make contact with their relatives;

Ensuring (as and when the political situation allows) that the cemetery is restored and maintained to the standard of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (including the memorial to the 107 Royal Air Force Iraq Levies).
