Rymill, Watkins, Courtauld and Chapman at Base after Courtauld's relief
Photographer: Cozens, Henry Iliffe (1904-1995). Expedition: British Arctic Air Route Expedition 1930-31. Leader: Henry George (Gino) Watkins. Date: 1930. John Rymill, Gino Watkins, Augustine Courtauld and Frederick Chapman, seated on a sledge. Augustine Courtauld, had remained alone at the Ice Cap Station to record meteorological conditions. He had rations and fuel to last for approximately three months, but due to terrible weather conditions it was not until he had been at the station for 150 days that a relief party was able to reach him, just as his fuel ran out.
