HC Deb 28 April 1948 vol 450 c55W
86. Mr. Gallacher

asked the Secretary of State for War when the British Military Mission which was established in Syria in 1945 to reorganise and re-equip the Syrian Army, completed its task; and what was the date of its recall.

Mr. M. Stewart

There has not been a British Military Mission in Syria in 1945 or subsequently. The small British Army training team which was sent there in July, 1945, to help to train the Syrian Gendarmerie was withdrawn without replacement in the Spring of 1946.
