Note
  • Digital access copies available
  • Establishment of context and the precise dating of this collection may not be possible. Annotation on the back of two photographs reads: "Manderson, 1924, Ross Smith flight". The 'Ross Smith flight' note probably refers to Captain Ross Smith and his brother Keith, who completed the first London to Australia flight. They took off from Hounslow on 12 November 1919, they arrived at Darwin’s Fanny Bay aerodrome on 10 December 1919. 'Manderson' may relate to H. R. Manderson, a Melbourne journalist and recorder. He was secretary and deputy of a motorcycle survey party, led by Mr. Reginald Lloyd for Aerial Services Ltd. The party undertook a rough survey of the air route between Sydney and London. This expedition was a precursor to the Ross Smith flight. The survey party left Sydney on January 31, 1919, arriving in Darwin on June 10, 1919 (https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/195330536; https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/3296586). The year 1924 may be an error, as Ross Smith died in 1922. Coincidently, Manderson was part of an expedition from Oodnadatta to Central Australia in 1924, but the only recorded mode of transport was a Ford truck (https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/83977665)
