One of the jobs of the dog handlers was to make sure that the dogs were fed properly. The source of food was the seals that are abundant around the seas of Antarctica and particularly around Signy, so some would have to be selected to be dog food and then shot and butchered in preparation. Towards the start of winter a number of seals would have to be killed and stored away to feed the dogs over the winter months when there won't be seals around.

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.
