Aga - the source of
Fid warmth, food and coziness for decades
© R. Sherman - picture taken 1956 / 57
Used as they run off a range of fuels and don't need to be connected to the electricity supply when a big surge in power for cooking dinner could result in the genny stalling. When I was on base in the mid 80's the Agas ran on aviation kerosene from a 40 gallon drum on the back slope which the cook had to go and change every now and then when it emptied.

|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.
