Chapter Summary

At Burujird, anti-Russian feeling was evidently strong. One of the grievances being that the Muscovites were forcing people to accept devalued rouble notes for their purchases, another that they were buying wheat to transport to Russia, another (voiced by the Telegraph Master) that they monopolized the telegraph lines at their pleasure, causing great inconvenience to the public generally and the merchants in particular. However, at Kirmanshah, Anglo-Russian relations were very cordial. Serving with the Russians was an Anzac wireless squadron under Lieut. White, and a Survey of India party under Captain Perry and Lieut. Renwick, which had retreated with them from Khanaqin; Captain Durie, Manager of the Bank but now in uniform as assistant to Colonel Rowlandson the British Liaison Officer attached to General Baratov at Hamadan, had made himself indispensable to them for their supply and transport arrangements.

Keywords: Anglo-Russian relations; anti-Russian feeling; Burujird; General Baratov; Kirmanshah
