Norwegian Flag on Bouvetoya

For: Members of the Bouvetoya contingent

From: Bob Headland

The following illustration, from Chr Christensens Hvalfangstmuseum in Sandefjord, Norway, shows the first Norwegian flag deployed Bouvetoya and the hut ‘Villa Haapløs’ (Hopeless House). We know it was left on the island, and now we know it was made of metal. Bearing in mind the usual weather there this seems to have been a wise precaution.

Regards; and more after I return from the Arctic.
