Very Cold Mutt Hoping for Scraps
Base H - Signy Island Antarctica

    ©Copyright P. Ward - picture taken 1985 / 86

Outside the kitchen winter in mid-winter. Feathers as fluffed out as they can be against the bitter cold, mutts lived off the scraps that they could get from the base kitchen during midwinter as any other source of food was either absent (other wildlife) or completely frozen and often buried beneath the snow and ice. They really should have headed north for the winter, but stayed around base as the base was there, I always thought this gave us some kind of responsibility to help keep them alive.

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.
