Collection consists of photocopies of flight reports and other documentation, an information book for the Imperial Defence College Tour of the Middle East in 1949, and a report by a German general on Operation Cerberus. Documents related to Bryans' early career include the report of his pilot's graduation tests, flight reports, headquarters orders for flights, and some correspondence. Also included are four photographs, three portraits of Bryans and one group photograph from an RAF navigation school. The information book from the Imperial Defence College tour is titled "General Headquarters Middle East Land Forces Nut Shell, 30 July to 30 Aug, 1949." It includes a programme of the tour, as well as topographical, military and political information on Tripolitania, Cyrenaica, Egypt, Greece, Cyprus, Iraq, Aden and Aden Protectorate, East Africa, Sudan and Eritrea, and Malta. Two maps, an outline map of the tour and a road map of Greece, are also included. The report by an unidentified German general is titled "The Channel Break Through 1942" and describes Operation Cerberus, the escape of three German battleships, Prinz Eugen, Gneisenau and Scharnhorst, from Brest to Norway in February 1942. The British counter-action, code-named Operation Fuller, is also described.
