Victoria University Antarctic Research Expedition Science and Logistics Reports 1970-71: VUWAE 15
In planning the expedition it was estimated that 30 D.S.I.R. 20-man day food boxes would be required for the season's work. It was later decided to order only 26 food boxes and to supply the equivalent of five food boxes in the form of fresh meat, tinned vegetables and tinned fruit. By the end of the season only 15 had been used. All stocks of loose VUWAE food were left in the VUWAE store at Scott Base. This food, about the equivalent of 4 food boxes, would only be useful as a supplement to new food boxes, and should not be counted as food in hand.
