    Basil Watson left Melbourne on the 6 May 1914 for England to learn about aviation construction and to fly at the Sopwith Aviation Company in Kingston. He sailed on the R.M.S Mooltan with his friends Harry Hawker and Harry Kauper who were on their return trip to England after spending several months in Australia demonstrating the Sopwith Tabloid Biplane to the Australian Government and public. The first Aerial mail from the Western District of Victoria, Mount Gambier, Casterton, Warrnambool, Hamilton and Camperdown was carried by Basil Watson to Middle Park in late February 1917.
