Day 8. Sunday 9th August 1970 – England


Late rising in the morning, dinner at Eileen’s after which everyone apart from Rod and me went to the Museum at Greenwich. Eileen’s father came back in the afternoon and invited us back for tea, a very easy but pleasant day. Received one 28lb bag of cooking rice and a 28lb bag of flour.

Everything seems to be in limbo at the moment, the grapevine back home says some of our mates have set up a book on how far we will get?

Below copies of letters from Sir Vivian Fuchs of the British Arctic Survey who was extremely helpful and very encouraging when we went down to London to meet him.
