    juliet,i assume you have been in contact with colin at this poiint. if not, he was the senior guy on the scott base team that provided snowcraft training. if he didnʹt know your dad i would be surprised. if they didnʹt work at scott base at the same time he will be able to tell you who to contact. another possible source to talk with is peter cleary. i donʹt have a contact for him but colin might, or the folks at the antnz office in chch. also the current head of the new zealand program, lou sanson, started in the program as a instructor at scott base and he might also have known your dad.bt

    juliet,assume you mean the oic of scott base. that name does not ring a bell as someone at mcmurdo. ask around to some of the old hands in the nz program. try mike mahon. good luck.bt
