A DETAILED SECRET INTELLIGENCE REPORT BY THE ARAB BUREAU OF EVENTS LEADING UP TO THE ARAB REVOLT. The Arab Bureau was a section of the Cairo Intelligence Department established in 1916, during the First World War to "harmonise British political activity in the Near East ... [and] to keep the Foreign Office, the India Office, the Committee of Defence, the War Office, the Admiralty, and Government of India simultaneously informed of the general tendency of Germano-Turkish Policy" (Mohs, P. Military Intelligence and the Arab Revolt (New York, 2008) p. 34). Gilbert Clayton was the head or "chief" of the Arab Bureau, with David Hogarth, a naval intelligence officer, acting director, and Kinahan Cornwallis his deputy. Gertrude Bell, William Ormsby-Gore and T.E. Lawrence were also part of the Arab Bureau.
