Flag with Whale Bone Supports
Base H - Signy Island Antarctica

 ©Copyright C. Gimmingham - picture taken 1965

The flag pole is supported by 4 large whale ribs found around the base and dating from the days of the Norwegian whaling station on the site. By the end of the winter, the flag would be worn and tattered and significantly shorter. It was then given to one of the winterers by lottery.

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
