Capt Ric Airey, SG, Adelaide, Rothera, etc. - 1974-1980 - Edinburgh, Scotland Out of the ether, all you lovely people, hello and well met, hope every one still clinging to the wreckage, they finally found me out after 32 years in the air and grounded me, flew south with American cousins but BAS wont have me not surprising with mother superior still in charge grin, she's done well for a primary school teacher with a rubber fetish. Damn it i have missed you all wonder where Mex Merson, Howard Platt, Gerry Lawson are now .ref history being r/o skeletons I can do particularly the funny ones see doggerel BAS club letter 34 , also why is Nigel Leader-Williams not yet prime minster, and Howard my dads still alive and still my hero. Sea ice fast and plateau clear sledge dog days remain most dear xxricxx
Jonathan Barker, Granny! South Georgia (M) 1972-74 - Reading, Berkshire Ex MN - Base Radio Operator - got a couple of weeks on Barff Peninsular in Summer which was a great break and actually felt like a 'real' explorer rather than a KEP resident! :-) V fond memories of those 18 months - Elephant Seals breeding outside the radio shack, lenticular cloud lit by red sunsets over Mt Paget/Allardyce Range, trips on Lille Carl(?) to West Cumberland Bay, fur seals, w/end walks to Maiviken, Mt Hodges, Hestesletten, Moraine Fjord and I could go on.... greatly missed!
