R.J.Tingey writes:

On the front page of your July 1993 issue you published a picture of 2 quaintly clad gentlemen above a caption 'Who are we?'. I would imagine that the question was answered long ago but in case it hasn't I submit that Mawson was the man in the flat cap and Stillwell was the man in 'the rather fetching snow suit'. I support my case with the picture 'Five Antarctic explorers from Australia' on which I have put numbers to get around the misleading caption.
