FIDS Gallery -  Signy - Preparing to dive

Signy Island - Preparation of a dive-hole to go diving under the sea ice. The snow has been pushed back from the surface and this saw with a special ice blade is being used to cut a hole through the ice. Once cut, the floating square is cut into quarters and the then each quarter pushed under the ice where it's buoyancy keeps it in place. Not too bad a job until you hit the sea, then the blade sprays you with exceptionally cold water  - 1985
