Ceylon (Khaki), Koggala Lake, 1940s retro. Via The Clipper Trans Ocean Service Australia-Ceylon-Singapore.

On July 10, 1943 Qantas Airline's inaugural 'Catalina Flying Boat Service' via Ceylon took off from Koggala Lake (where Stick No Bills co-founders Meg and Philip lived with their daughters from 2011 until 2016) and landed in Perth 28 hours later. To avoid detection, the perilous Indian Ocean crossing was always done in radio silence until the end of WWII. Eastbound passengers such as the lady featured here would be presented with a certificate confirming their membership of the “Order Of The Double Sunrise” upon landing at Swan River in Perth.
