The teams regret that once the expedition is underway, they will only be able to respond to your messages on their return in January. Communications from the Antarctic will be extremely limited.



  1. A fantastic donation from John and Lesley Van Kuffeler. We are all thrilled and send many thanks to you both.

    It has been such a long time since we had that weekend at yours before P Coy, I knew from the first time we met that you were destined for great things. I wish you and the rest of the guys all the best and god speed, let’s not leave it so long to catch up a couple of pints of Guinness is what we need or so we thought 25 years ago.

    All the best

      Awh lovely Lambsie thank you for your kind words and will relay to Mark and the lads tonight when he phones home. Look forward to seeing you on Feb 16th for the Wecome Home Reception. Merry Christmas

  4. Mark, Vic.

    Training now complete, and went better than expected. Some adjustments for next time but all looking positive – 105 finished. Lets hope that half of them don’t crash and burn on day 1 in January!

    I know you cant see this out there in the great whiteness of the Polar region but we are following your journey daily and listen to the reports avidly and with no small measure of awe. Over half way now and its good to hear you have not lost your sense of humour, Katie and I particularly enjoyed the top ten ailments! Hannas letter from home was lovely to read and I must say even Bentley looks like he is missing you! We will continue to check in daily on the final 50% and wish you all ongoing good spirits and luck. I have no doubt you have all been tested and will continue to be tested to your limits but I know you will overcome this and achieve your goal! Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a South Polar New Year!

    Mark, Jane, Katie, Florie & Rosie

  10. A huge thank you to Shona Fisher, not only for all the help she gave the teams in fundraising, but also for the enormous donation she has so kindly given the Royal British Legion in support of the boys’ fundraising efforts for the Personnel Recovery Centres.
    Thank you Shona from the teams, their wives, and of course the RBL.

  11. With many thanks from the teams to Ken Frewer for his kind donations, the first one when the boys left and the second one today. Both are really appreciated Ken.

  12. We’re following your progress daily and it’s great to feel you are all so close hearing the daily updates. Brilliant effort from both teams. Keep it up guys and safe journey.

    We met you on a Sunday night in November at the Broccolino restaurant in Punta Arenas. We spoke about your coming out to our place in Río Verde (an hour outside of Punta Arenas) for a lamb barbecue upon your return. It wasn’t the wine talking! Do shoot us an email (lascharas[at] upon your return so that we can make arrangements. We wish you much success and safe travels!

    Rod and Amy

      Hi Rod and Amy, Mark did tell me about your meeting and your very kind invitation. I will ensure he gets your message. I had just left Punta Arenas that day so did not get to meet you but I am sure the lads would like thank you for your very kind hospitality that evening.
      Best regards

    Hi all down south. Just to wish you all well from the welfare staff. Thank you for your message of thanks. I would just like to mention Mark who has been the driving force in fund raising from our christmas functions. He has now collected over £1000.00 towards your worthy cause. From us well done and keep going.

    Steve and the team
