1976 the Shambles glacier

These photos were sent in by David Ball who was at Adelaide Base then Rothera in 1976. The pictures are of a Muskeg tracked vehicle which fell into a crevasse in the Shambles Glacier where I had traveled on my winter trip.
Everyone got out safely.
It shows how dangerous Glacial travel is, this crevasse would have been covered with snow as the bridge over during winter.
