A bright day with promises of winter cold to come, pack ice starting to move in, not thick enough to lead to walk able sea-ice yet, but a positive promise for the future as well as a good days outing in itself.
This Neil Rose walking up the slope towards me, as I remember we had similar outlooks and as fit as each other so the pace was good for us both. A day well shared and that I remember in some detail even today. I only saw Neil the once after return to the UK later in the year we came back and have never heard anything of him in the intervening 20 years. It seems odd how we care share incredible experiences with people we live so closely with for 2 years and then nothing thereafter. Nothing specific to Neil, he is one of several people who I knew so closely and then lost contact. Nothing unusual maybe, it happens in life all the time, but anything Antarctic always seems so much more-so in whatever direction than most things that happen to us.

|This picture is one of a collection assembled in
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.
