Carousel Sniper Victim


Mar 19, 2021

The Double Sunrise service was formed in 1943 to re-establish the Australia–England air link that had been cut due to the fall of Singapore in 1942. The service initially operated from its base in Nedlands, Western Australia near Perth, to the Royal Air Force base at Lake Koggala near Galle in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka).

It was later extended to Karachi in India (now part of Pakistan), which was the terminus for the British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) service from England. The name of the service was derived from the crew and passengers observing two sunrises on each flight.
