War Diary for Thursday, October 19, 1939:


Anglo-French-Turkish Treaty of Mutual Assistance signed. The treaty is aimed primarily against Russia, which was always been interested in Istanbul and the Dardanelles as a gateway to the Mediterranean. Turkey receives back the Sandzak of Alexandretta in northern Syria, which she had lost in World War One to France.
