Base From Robin
Base H - Signy Island Antarctica

©Copyright W. Townsend - picture taken 1963

Some idea of how broken and rugged the landscape of Signy is can be seen in this picture. There is no-where that is a flat walk away, everywhere is up and down hills all the time, the terrain is usually rocky with a lot of overlying scree which is awkward to negotiate if there is no convenient snow or ice-slope nearby. The advantage of this is that it makes Signy seem larger than its actual approx 5 x 3 miles. If it was flat and easy to get around, then it would seem quite boring, as it is, different parts of the island become a whole distant walk in themselves.

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.
