Basra, Iraq

21 November, 1919

Despite having a sand clogged engine and strained or broken aileron control wires from the Sandstorm overnight in Ramadi, the repairs were completed quickly and they set off early the same afternoon. The 10th Indian Lancers stationed at the Ramadi old war camp managed to provide them with enough fuel to skip their planned stop in Baghdad and arrive in Basra.
