With a foreword by the Duke of Edinburgh, who travelled to the Antarctic on the maiden voyage of the RRS John Biscoe, this is the story of just one voyage of the ship from the UK to the British Antarctic Survey base in Antarctica. Illustrated with fabulous photographs by the author, as well as images from the Royal Collection, the book tells the story of the most famous of British Antarctic Survey vessels, the RRS John Biscoe.
Trevor Boult retired from the sea to become a writer. He writes for the Numast Telegraph and the Northern Lighthouse Board magazine. He sailed on the final voyage of the RRS John Biscoe, documenting the journey and the unspoilt Antarctic at a time when few people had ever visited the Southern Ocean.
