  47. Eric Harrison - Military Aviator
    List
    Public

    Eric Harrison was born at Clinkers Hill near Castlemaine in Victoria in 1886. Harrison left Australia for England in 1911 together with Harry Hawker, Harry Busteed and Harry Kauper all in search of careers in aviation. On his arrival in England Harrison trained as a pilot at the Bristol School and after a mere 30 minutes of actual flight time he attained his Aviator's Certificate from the Royal Aero Club. Soon after he was employed by Bristol as an instructor.

    In December 1911, the Australian Defence Department advertised in England for "two competent mechanists and aviators" to establish a flying corps and school. Harry Busteed who was by now Bristol’s chief test pilot, and Henry Petre ( a former solicitor) were selected. However, Harry Busteed withdrew his application which then paved the way for Eric Harrison, who was then commissioned in December 1912.

  52. Geodetic Survey of Victoria
    List
    Public

    'Such a work as this, requiring as it does a considerable knowledge of pure mathematics and physical science, besides an intimate acquaintance with astronomical observations and calculations seems to fall within the natural province of the astronomer, whose studies and attention have been directed to such matters as these: and this view has been held in other countries where the same operations have been carried out." Empire Tuesday 16 Jan 1866

    "Government Astronomer Thomas Lewis Ellery was responsible for establishing the first geodetic survey of Victoria."

    Measurement commenced in January 1860 from the first survey marker point 'the South Base Stone' which is situated near the Hoppers Crossing Railway station, near Werribee. The Survey took 12 years to complete. The survey is a significant part of Victoria’s history and one that still impacts on every Victorian.

    Robert Lewis John Ellery, C.M.G., F.R.S., F.R.A.S., was born on July 14, 1827 in Cranleigh, Surrey. He died at his residence, in Observatory House, The Domain, South Yarra, Victoria on Tuesday 14 January 1908.

    These newspaper articles are very interesting.

    Harry Hawker left for England in 1911 together with Harry Busteed, Harry Kauper and Eric Harrison. He joined the Sopwith Aircraft Co in June 1912. In September 1912, Thomas Sopwith taught Harry how to fly and after two and a half hours of lessons Harry gained his Pilots Certificate. Three months later, he won the duration record of England with a flight of 8 hours and 23min, the first of a number of flight records to be achieved by Harry Hawker.
    The trans-Atlantic Crossing attempt-
    The armistice on 11 November 1918 bought an end to WWI. Harry, no longer busy test flying aircraft for the Military, set his focus back on breaking records. To this end Harry took an important part in the design and construction of an aircraft capable of making the long journey from Newfoundland to Ireland – and be the first to fly across the Atlantic.
    He began the flight on 18 May 1919 with Lieutenant-Commander Mackenzie-Grieve as his navigator but owing to an overheating radiator they were forced to ditch into the sea 14.5 hours into the flight. Luckily for them, they came down in sight of a Danish steamer, the SS Mary, and were rescued from the rough sea. The Mary was without radio facilities and news of their safety had to await arrival at a Scottish port six days later.
    Presumed lost, King George V King sent a message of condolence to Harry’s wife Muriel; Banjo Patterson, eulogised him in a piece called “ Hawker - The Standard Bearer” Six days later, when news of the aviators rescue was known, King George V announced that he would present both men would with the Air Force Cross – the first ever personal investitures. The Daily Mail acknowledged Hawker as the first pilot to fly over 1000 miles (1609 km) of water without touching down, and awarded him a prize of £5000

    Public

    Harry left for England in 1911 together with Harry Busteed, Harry Kauper and Eric Harrison. He joined the Sopwith Aircraft Co in June 1912. In September 1912, Thomas Sopwith taught Harry how to fly and after two and a half hours of lessons Harry gained his Pilots Certificate. Three months later, he won the duration record of England with a flight of 8 hours and 23min, the first of a number of flight records to be achieved by Harry Hawker.

    In May 1913 the Brooklands Automobile Club offered a prize of £50 to anyone breaking the existing height record of 10,650 feet. Harry did just that, in the Sopwith Three Seater with a flight to 11,450 feet. He then went on to set another record with a passenger to 13,400 feet, then 10,800 feet with two passengers and 8,400 feet with three passengers.

    With a zest for flying, Harry, along with his friend Harry Kauper as mechanic, set out to win the Daily Mail 1913 Circuit of Britain prize of £5,000 for completing a course of 1,540 miles. Unfortunately after they had flown their Sopwith Seaplane 1,043 miles (1678 km) in 21 hours 44 minutes flying time, a mishap ended their attempt. However the Daily Mail, acknowledging that this was the first time that 1,000 miles (1609 km) had been flown over an outwards course, awarded Hawker a special prize of £1,000.

    During November of 1913 Harry was the prime mover in the design of the revolutionary Sopwith Tabloid. What emerged was a short-winged biplane which was the fastest and most maneuverable aeroplane in the world at that time. The Tabloid had two side-by-side seats, a wing span of 25’6” (7.77m) and was 20’ (6.09m) long. This Sopwith was small, compact and fast, and it got the nickname “Tabloid” after a new type of small pharmaceutical pill – and the name stuck.

    He returned to Australia in January 1914 and flew several flying demonstrations at Caulfield, Sydney, Albury, and Ballarat. He also flew from Elsternwick to land on the Federal Government House lawns where he was met by the Governor General, Lord Denman.

    Australian Pioneer Aviator. Born in Carlton on the 6th November 1887 to parents Jessie May (nee Marson) and Henry Richard Busteed. Henry died in England on the 14th June 1965.

    Busteed left Australia for England in 1911 together with Harry Hawker, Harry Busteed Eric Harrison and Harry Kauper all in search of careers in aviation.

    Busteed was one of the first 100 (and the 2nd Australian) to receive a Royal Aero Club Certificate (his was No. 94 - gained on 13/6/1911 at the Bristol School, Salisbury plain). It was not long before he became Bristol’s chief test pilot.

    In December 1911, the Australian Defence Department advertised in England for "two competent mechanists and aviators" to establish a flying corps and school. Busteed was at this time Bristol’s chief test pilot. He and Henry Petre (a former solicitor) were selected. However, Harry Busteed withdrew his application to remain in England. Busteed later entered into the Air Service and was appointed to First Reserve RFC on 4/10/1913.
