The exhibition included material from the BAS and Royal Society
archives and other sources.
There was a science exhibit, but aimed at a non-technical audience, which
identified scientific "nuggets" resulting from the data
collected from each year of operation.
Another exhibit focussed on the well-known fid's ability to "improvise"
(otherwise known as 'fids bodges'). Like
the time one of the prefabricated buildings was supplied without nuts and
bolts, which then had to be turned up on the lathe.
Unfortunately we were not able to borrow the model of Halley 6
but there was a poster display instead.
The BAS Archives Section
had an exhibit explaining their work and its relationship to the history of Halley.
The Royal Society contributed flags which flew over the base during the IGYE and
The "bring your own" exhibition was amazing,
with wealth of photos, maps, Midwinter magazines, and other
historic exhibits such as the Underground sign and the
propeller of the infamous Lansing Snowplane.
