The Iraq Levies was the first Iraqi military force established by the British in British controlled Iraq.
The Iraq Levies were a noteworthy feature of the Kingdom of Iraq, and especially of northern Iraq during the years of the mandate. They distinguished themselves in May 1941 during the Anglo-Iraqi War and the force thereafter grew and survived until disbanded in May 1955 when control of RAF Habbaniya and RAF Shaibah was handed to Iraq
