It’s Remembrance Sunday and I pay my respects to the men who fought in a war that has been deliberately omitted from history, the Antarctic War of 1947-48. This film is dedicated to one of the survivors of that war, my friend “Jack”. I also wish to remember the American victims of the First Antarctic War of 1946-47, otherwise known as “Operation Highjump”.
