Over the many years of Antarctic Exploration, one thing keeps coming back year after year. Facial hair!
From the days of Mawson, Amundsen and Scott, the growing of beards and moustaches goes hand in hand with being down here.
Whether it’s a thin and wispy moustache, right up to a full blown mutton-chop, the styles come and go with the seasons.
Some of our guys have grown fantastic specimens since their training days in Hobart - and some have still got a way to go.
Plus those beards aren’t just there to look good, they serve an important role in the prevention of frostbite.
