Rubert Gunnis, ADC to Sir Ronald Storrs during 1927-1937, noted in his diary:
Down to meet HE at Larnaca. He has had a good time and has brought back lots of nice icons etc. In the afternoon to meet a Mrs Durant who is flying round Africa and Europe, an incredible woman, very nice plane with pilot and mechanic. She wears trousers and never stops talking about herself. American and daughter of Buick and Durant cars.
