Consequently in 1955 the Government decided to fund a special expedition to undertake air photography and land-based control of Grahamland, now referred to as the Antarctic Peninsula. Peter Mott was assigned to organise and lead the expedition, which ultimately surveyed 35,000 square miles of hitherto unmapped territory. View more info
