From a correspondent:
Re the Baghdad Metro – I was employed as a subbie in Munich in the Summer of 1983 – we were working on electrical installation design (lighting, etc.) for the company Joint Venture Dorsch (“Detailed Design Consultants Lot 011”). The drawings produced were for “Saddam City Depot, Running Shed” and carried the header “Baghdad Rapid Transit Authority”. They all seemed quite innocent and ‘above board’ at that time.
