A new book of interest to the CME family and our surveyors, in particular, has recently been published. Two Years Below the Horn: Operation Tabarin, Field Science, and Antarctic Sovereignty, 1944-1946, published by the University of Winnipeg, tells the story of Major Andrew Taylor B.Sc (C.E.), CD, M.A., Ph.D., D.Sc., O.C., a renowned Antarctic explorer and the only Canadian to lead an expedition. The article Sapper Leads Antarctic Expedition tells some of the story, and provides a short biography of Major Taylor.
