April 8, 1912: Wild’s pioneering party makes it home safely

–from his journal published in Leif Mills’ “Frank Wild”–

“8 April.  As we neared the hut last Saturday the wind was freshening and drift flying heavily and within ten minutes of our arrival was blowing a gale which still continues, so had we not got away when we did, we should still be laid up in our wet bags on short rations.”
