Voyage Leader

Donald Franklin Styles


The northern Prince Charles Mountains party was established by airlift from the ship to Mawson, and then to Moore Pyramid and the PCMs. Twenty-nine men and eight tons of equipment and stores were airlifted to Mawson and four men and some stores had been taken to Moore Pyramid. During the airlift an appendectomy was done on a Nella Dan crewman, as weather conditions had made it impossible to fly him ashore. Heard Island was visited to land stores for the Australian Party which was to traverse the Island from Atlas Cove in Feb. The McDonald Islands were visited but a landing was not made.
