Love this Thank you very much for your post, very interesting indeed with the very personal angle real life information. This made me interested in looking up more info and I thought you may be interested in this www.southpolestation.com... it mentions the problems of the experimental antenna work in 1964 and the fire just as your step father spoke of, Thanks again for a great post

Thanks for the link. I looked at wiki and a general search and they had a little info nothing like the link you gave. Wow, thank you.

When he said he went to Antarctica my Admiral Byrd scenes tingled, but my step dad wasn't a conspiracy minded person. So I left him out of my full blown wonderment of all South pole theories. Thanks again.

I'm sorry about your loss. In the 80's I was in the Navy. My next set of orders was to VXE-6. They flew the supply missions to McMurdo. If I hadn't got hurt I would have gotten to Antarctica. Always wanted to meet a penguin on his turf.

You were smart to bring it here, there are some really great researchers in membership, just hope they find this thread and can jump in to guide you. You never know I have seen some truly amazing things that were impossible to uncover found out in minutes.

All the best, keep us informed please. I like you am interested in the powerlines.

Already had some good info from a post. My step dad's whole antarctic service was kind of a story til I found the photos. I think if I had the photos in my grubby hands while he was still kicking it would have been a more well rounded story.

But as it stands I will write on the back of the photos that it is from Operation Deep Freeze III store them safely and and scan digitally copies. I also have to see who can print the one photo that is not in the pack, I have the negatives but it is a real old negative, no holes on the edges for the gears to pull though the 35mm camera.

I belong to some Cold War Warrior sites. With your permission I'm going to throw this out there and see if anybody knows anything.

Please, I really am going by the developed dates embossed on the edges of the pics and what my step dad told us. Any further info would be wonderful. Thank you.

Here is a link you might find interesting about Operation Deep Freeze III.

It is a PDF:

www.navy.mil...


The men connected with Opera- tion Deep Freeze I11 found this to be so. If you were to visit one of the most isolated outposts of the U. S. Navy, the chances are that you would arrive at the Amundsen-Scott IGY South Pole Station.

Sorry to hear about your step father

These pictures are great , I love the lighting

in the last pic there is some weird strange dark looking net, at first I thought it was Football /soccer goal posts with the net

but its just a shadow what is that ?

thanks

I saw that too. I think it is from a lot # sticker from the developer back in the 1960's. It looks like this little 3/8" x 1" lot# sticker ended up on that picture and left a shadow from the adhesive that broke down.

There are very few people who get to go the Antarctica to live and work like my step dad did.

Wish I would have found these pictures while he was still with us so he could explain these.

Sorry about your Dad mate.

That definitely looks like a double exposure of a soccer goal and net...maybe your Dad played a bit of footie with the argies before the left for the station, and took a picture of it on the same roll of film?
