From the Vault – Remembering Sir Ed: Antarctic Adventure

  • Monday 1 Jan

G Antarctic Adventure documents Sir Ed's involvement in helping to establish Scott Base. Leading the Commonwealth Polar Expedition's New Zealand party, the team scout the location, construct buildings, and make preparations to support an expedition by a British team, led by Doctor Vivian Fuchs. After wintering over, Hillary would, in January 1958, controversially reach the South Pole before Fuchs - only the third party after Scott and Amundsen to do so overland.
