As our team are conserving Horseshoe we will be updating diary entries from Base Y from 1955 through to 2017. Opened in 1955 and closed in 1960, Base Y is a time capsule of Antarctic history. With contributions from base logs, personal diaries and modern day updates, Horseshoe Diaries will keep you up to date with what has happened, what is happening, and what will happen with this remarkable base.
