Auckland Islands 1942-43
Charles Fleming was a geologist, paleontologist and ornithologist knighted for his contribution to science and conservation in 1977. This book covers his year in the subantarctic islands as a coast watcher during the highly secret wartime Cape Expedition. This diary is a description of the daily lives of these coast watchers, living in an extreme and disconnected environment.
