From the Vault – Remembering Sir Ed: Tasman Glacier - Polar Exercise

  • Monday 1 Jan

G Narrated by Sir Ed, this 1956 newsreel footage captures preparations for the Commonwealth Trans-Antarctic Expedition. The New Zealand contingent, (of which he is leader), are shown training at Aoraki Mount Cook National Park, putting a team of huskies through their paces, and illustrating classic Kiwi ingenuity by substituting an old car chassis in lieu of a sledge to tow.
