Victoria University Antarctic Research Expedition Science and Logistics Reports 1970-71: VUWAE 15



The expedition is grateful for the financial assistance provided by the University Grants Committee for equipment and supplies, and to the University Council for grants to student geologists. We are indebted to Professor Clark, Department of Geology, for his continued assistance and interest.

We acknowledge with gratitude the generous air support provided by U.S. Navy VXE-6 Squadron, and would like to mention Lcdrs. Bruce Campbell and George Drag, and Cdr. John Dana, and their Hercules crews. The party is especially grateful to Lt. James Brandau and his helicopter crew who have become a legend in their own time.

We thank Brian Porter and his Scott Base staff for their cooperation and the extra effort willingly made to keep us mobile.

The assistance of Antarctic Division, DSIR, with logistic and clerical matters was much appreciated.

We are also grateful to Dennis Rainey for finding and providing air photos from the Lands and Survey collection.

Contributions from philatelists totalling $31 were gratefully received.
