Chapter Summary

In the last week of September 1919, after a short visit to Tehran to pay the author's respects to Sir Percy Cox, the author reported at Qazvin to take over the duties as P.O. Norperforce. The position of the P.O. and his assistants was in consequence primarily that of liaison officers between the military command and the troops generally on the one hand and, on the other, the local administrations of the provinces of Qazvin, Gilan, Khamsa and Azarbayjan. In addition to the routine duties of dealing with the manifold day-to-day problems as they arose, they were thus in a strong position to gather accurate intelligence of military and political interest throughout the sphere of Norperforce: to the west as far as the Turkish frontier, northwards to the Transcaucasian border and the Caspian; eastwards to the meridian of Tehran; and south to Hamadan.

Keywords: military command; Norperforce; political interest
