After making the flight from Karachi to Delhi, they learnt that Poulet was only a day ahead of them, after undertaking the flight from France. The nine hour flight had taken its toll and they were ‘thoroughly tired, but extremely happy’ to arrive and regenerate at the R.C.F mess. They had completed half their journey, taking only 13 days to arrive in Delhi after flying for 5,700 miles. The welcome by friends was timely, considering this section of the journey revealed only a sparse desert landscape and the engine exhausts had left them deaf.
