A smallish, but nicely illustrated, publication from the Scott Polar Research Institute as part of their Polar Profile series. This examines the British Graham Land Expedition (BGLE), 1934-37, which was led by John Rymill. Consisting of 16, mostly young, explorers, scientists and military officers, their goals were to reassert British sovereignty in the British Antarctic Territory, undertake scientific research, and assess the economic potential of the area. Despite modest financial resources, treacherous sea ice and difficult terrain, the BGLE was a great success: solving a geographical mystery, collecting significant scientific research data, and establishing the foundation of Britain’s ongoing scientific endeavours in Antarctica.
