Ready to Go Skiing
Base H - Signy Island Antarctica

  ©Copyright P. Tilbrook - picture taken 1962

Winter can drag on, especially if grey skies set in for weeks on end as it seems they sometimes do. However every now and then, the temperature drops, the sea-ice stabilizes, the sun comes out and that rarest and most welcome of events the fabled "Dingle Day" arrives. Suddenly spirits are lifted as if a rock you've been living under is taken away. Work is forgotten about and everyone get their boots on to get out and enjoy the real reason that they wanted to go to Antarctica in the first place.

(on another level, this picture reminds me of a "Man at C&A" ad)

This picture is one of a collection assembled in 2007 on the 60th anniversary of Signy Island Base: 60°43'S 045°36'W. Thank you to those who sent their treasured memories of their time in Antarctica and allowed them to be made into a commemorative cd and then placed here on the web.

The reunion weekend was 14-16 September 2007.
