Capt. Andrew Lang is a well-known Australian motorist, who, in 1910, explored Northern Australia for his Government. The board shown on his knee was used for making observations during the flight. His observer, Lieutenant Blowes, is only 19, and as a piliot brought down several German aeroplanes in France. Both suffered severely from frost, and Lieutenant Blowes had serious injuries to his hands, which, it will be seen, are bandaged. It was reported on January 6 that Captain Lang had been placed under open arrest for disclosing details of his climb.- [Pkotograp by C.N.]
