Allan "Tommo" Thomas:
I arrived on 2nd call in 2003, and missed relief, and then in 2004 I got a jolly flight to Rothera over relief!!, so my last summer, was my first relief at Halley....got a lot of stick for that naturally... [13/02/2005]
Gavin Francis:
Do you know if the Emperor penguin chicks I stuffed are still in the bar in Halley, or did they rot?!  The penguin taxidermy notes in the surgery specified borax to treat the skins, but I had to use rock salt instead... [26/02/2010] [Response from Charlie Robb.]
