    ROLL 1.
    (NOT PHOTOGRAPHICALLY NUMBERED) - IBDALI SHEIKH CO-OPERATES.



    INTRO: The sheiks of the tribes returning to Radfan are co-operating with Arab and Britain troops to expel the few remaining dissidents from their country. The Ibdalis at the far end of the Wadi Taym still have some dissidents in their mountainous domain. Sheikh of the Ibdalis recently flew a reconnaissance sortie with the Army Air Corps to pinpoint forts being used by the dissidents, as maps of the area can be unreliable and this was the best method of ensuring that house of innocent tribesmen did not suffer.
