Relief Day 1


The RRS Ernest Shackleton arrived to the edge of the Brunt Ice Shelf and the relief operation started today. For the next several days the team will be unloading all cargo from the ship onto sledges to be towed 48km to the site of the new base. The towing is done using two types of vehicles - the trusty John Deere tractor (in the picture), as well as a number of Pisten Bullies.
