South Pole 2011  [30th Oct 12]

The Scott Memorial cricket match at the South Pole 17th January 2012 - Click for full-size.


On the 3rd January 2012 Hannah and the Polar Vision team Andrew Jensen, Richard Smith and the amazing, severely partially sighted Alan Lock arrived at the South Pole after 38 days skiing from the Filchner Ice shelf.

This expedition was Hannah's 5th full journey from the Coast to the South Pole and her 6th pole journey including a shorter two degree trip in 2008. This was her fourth expedition as a guide for Antarctic Logistics and Expeditions (ALE).

"I'm starting to know this part of the world pretty well" she says with a grin, "but it's still a huge honour and pleasure to be doing this work."

Hannah also had the added bonus this season of returning to the South Pole for a month after her expedition to assist with the running of a field camp there to host the Scott Centenary celebrations. She was very excited to be a part of the winning team captained by Neil Laughton in the England V The Rest Of The World cricket match. (Pictured)
