'I do not think we can hope for any better thing now.
We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.
Last Entry - For God's sake look after our people.'
In memory of Capt. Robert Falcon Scott, Edward Wilson, Henry Bowers, Lawrence Oates and Edgar Evans. South Pole Expedition, 30th March 1912.
What was the outcome of this? Promised much but delivered little!! No pics..nothing...nil..nada!!
Heard nothing, and had no reply to my offer of help from RRPG. Presume it came to nothing.
Thats a shame as it had lots of potential. Probably another one of these urban myths about buried Jeeps etc. Heard a story when I was a lad about buried Jeeps and US equipment just outside Kelly Bray...turned out to be just that..a story!!
When I was growing up in Brisbane there was a deep waterhole (some say 90m) at the edge of the Archerfield airport that rumour would have it contained a Spitfire and other dumped war material. After many, many years of fund raising and government approval too-ing and fro-ing it was eventually drained.
They found, I think an aircraft wheel and a shopping trolley...
Not too long ago, a couple of men were fishing at a lake in an area that got heavily bombed.
As they were sitting there, an unexploded bomb detonated, a column of water rose, lots of dead fish.
Also found a pit full of MG151/20 rounds, some broken and wet but those things will still do a lot of damage.
I never liked the thought of having an explosive on my magnet, never had and hope i never will
