FIDS Gallery - Hope Bay - Unloading Cargo

Hope Bay, Latitude: 63°24'S, Longitude: 56°59'W
Occupied 10/02/45 - 13/02/64

A particularly iced-in year with an open sea and open landing jetty, but very obstructed area behind the jetty means more work than normal and a reliance on the ever-available fall-back position of any plans - FID-power.

Hands up all FIDS who have never had to manhandle large awkwardly-shaped and ridiculously heavy cargo boxes over extremely uneven terrain - ah, OK, so that's nobody then. If "health and safety" had reached Antarctica any earlier, it would still be pristine and ready to be discovered.
