Photo Comment

Flown from the UK to India by Neville Stack in company with G-EBKU flown by Bernard Leete. Delhi's Safdarjung (formerly Willingdon) aerodrome did not open until 1928. A photo of the Moths from another angle shows the Safdarjung Tomb, which was a landmark of the Safdarjung aerodrome. G-EBMO was wrecked at Shillong, India, on July 19, 1927 when it struck telegraph wires landing at the polo ground.
