Many thanks to all those who have helped with this webpage, especially to Iain Macdonald for images and help with construction, Vivian Ward for the graphics, John Macdonald for his  pictures, and Chris Kistler for his tidying up of the page.

I would also like to thanko my buddies on the ice, particularly members of K012 and  K014 from the kiwi side of things, and Bo-005M from the US side.  I am particularly grateful to Kevin Hoefling from Bo-005M for his photographs.  His photo of Hut 6 in the moonlight represents the banner to these webpages.
