That's what I was able to find:




Iranian cavalry in 1941




Iranian Gendarmerie in Qazvin. June 1941




General Zahedi - the leader of the pro-German factions in the Iranian army




Iran Air Force pilots




Talk of a Soviet soldier with the captive Iranian soldiers




Iraqi soldier (irregular?) oversees the German nationals deported from Iran.




Iraqi soldier (officer?)

Meeting of British and Iraqi military personnel.




Iraqi Army Soldiers




Iraqi artillery




As I understand it - the Iraqi sailors.




The officers






Iranian Cavalry





infantry


































Good information about Iranian artillery: http://www.kavehfarrokh.com/military-history-1900-present/iranian-artillery-units-early-1900s-1941/

And I is not the first to become interested in the Iraqi army in the wargame:

You welcome!

In my opinion for the conversion of the Iraqi infantry you can use figures the Austro-Hungarian infantry in tunic. Or the Hungarians in the second world war.
Cavalrymen are similar to Russian cavalry during the First World War.

The Campaign in Western Asia volume of the official Indian history has very detailed maps and accounts of the operations from the British view point, including a tank assault on a fort. Well worth getting, even if they are rather patchy on the Iranian side of things. A decent starting point for the latter is Osprey's Iran at War.
