' Thirst in the Desert'
- Michael Terry , F.R.G.S., F.R.E.S.
This is the last of three talks by Michael Terry on some of his experiences in the desert country of Western Australia. In 1923, with a friend, he set out by car from Queensland to reach the west coast on what was incidentally the first car journey on this route ever to be made. When they were 125 miles from their final destination they discovered that they had petrol for only about 75 miles, and the last 50 miles had to be accomplished on foot. This would have been simple enough had not mistaken directions led them off their tracks. The broadcast describes their horrifying experiences as, with only a handful of scones, some bully beef, and a tin of oil-fouled water, they struggled on and on in what seemed a hopeless quest. Michael Terry himself was left alone for two nights and a day while his friend set out to secure help.
