Up Team of 1979-80 Team of 1980-81 Halley Mags Local sceens

                

 

 

 

They said the boat was going to the Isle of White but it went the white continent!

They said we would be living in a 2 up 2 down, but it ended up 40 feet below.

They said there  would be central heating and there was. Well the kitchen was in the centre and that was warm.

What they didn't say was the dorm was in the fridge at -2oC and the honey pots (Toilets) were in the freezer at -12oC.

But this was home for the next two years.
