Rangoon, Burma

30 November, 1919

The race was on to reach Rangoon before Poulet, as no aircraft had previously landed their prior. After following the Irrawaddy River, they made their way into Rangoon following the railway. They were greeted by the Lieutenant-Governor of Burma Sir Reginald Craddock, and his wife Lady Craddock, who ensured they got an early night after their trying journey. On leaving Rangoon, the small racecourse that acted as a makeshift runway proved a challenge, as they barely cleared fences and treetops. Ross reported that if they had been a foot lower disaster would have fallen upon them.
