Official Annapurna South Face Expedition 1970 Souvenir Postcard Stamped Base Camp 1970

By: Whillans, Haston, Estcourt, Bonington

Price: £160.00

Publisher: 1970

Edition: 1970

Seller ID: 61442

Condition: Very good condition signed by Martin Boysen, Dougal Haston, Don Whillans, Chris Bonington, Nick Estcourt, Mick Burke, Tom Frost, Mike Thompson, Kelvin Kent and the ink stamp signature of Ian Clough, who sadly died in an avalanche on the expedition.


I understand a batch of 1000 of these postcards were produced and all were signed by the ten members of the expedition (some were also signed by the expedition's doctor, Dave Lambert). Sadly, many of these postcards never reached their destination. Left at a post office in Kathmandu before the expedition set off for Annapurna, many were stolen, the stamps steamed off and the cards thrown away. Ian Clough was in charge of supplies and arrived late in Kathmandu. The expedition members completed the signatures by using a rubber stamp of his signature. View more info
