Thanks are due to many colleagues for their assistance in discovering and accessing the material used to compile this report: in particular to Adrian Rushton (The Natural History Museum, London), John Faithfull (Hunterian Museum, University of Glasgow) and Andrew Gray (British Antarctic Survey). Teal Riley (British Antarctic Survey) provided a most helpful review of the preliminary text. The unsung heroes of the South Georgia geological investigations are the scientific field assistants: from a personal perspective I should like to thank sincerely, for their support and companionship, G ‘Jim’ Whitworth (1970–71), Eric Lawther (1971–72), and G ‘Dog’ Holden and Roger Daynes (1973–74).
