Ahmad Begg aka Miami (Halley V and VI, 4 seasons) - Cape Town, South Africa I worked for Morrison construction company on Halley 6. I was fortunate of being one of the guys to have built Halley 6. I was down in the Antarctic for 4 seasons. This was one of the best life experiences. The 4 years that I been going down there I got to meet so many different nationalities. The place itself is mind blowing. To think that you part of such a historic project and you were chosen out of hundreds of applicants. The travelling over there is an experience on its own. I had the honour and the privilege to voyage with the Earnest Shackleton. The whole project was mind blowing

Wayne Ellsmore (Halley 5 - 2000) - Saxmundham I was lucky enough to be a member of the millennium crew 99/2000 on the maiden voyage of RRS Ernest Shackleton, and a summer worker at Halley 5, amazing to be among a very few to have been on the continent for the last days of the 1900s and the first day of 2000 and will never forget my time there.

I'm sure I did this already... every now and then I send out emails, a proportion of these bounce back as "not found", often because it was a former work email or an ISP that no longer exists, as there is no longer any way to make contact I delete the record to keep things as current as I can..
