The other day, 1 December, it was international "Eat a Red Apple Day". 🍎
To celebrate this hugely significant holiday, here's an image of an outdoor training exercise of Recruit Course R5/83 at Dip Flat camp. The recruits are queueing up to take an apple from an outdoor bench. Recruit nearest camera is Farquhar.

Nothing beats a juicy red apple on a sunny day!

62 years ago this week, on 1 December 1959, the Antarctic Treaty was signed by 12 countries, including New Zealand, which was active in the Antarctic region during the International Geophysical Year (IGY) 1957-1958. This Treaty aimed to continue the principals of the IGY, ensuring that activities in Antarctica remain exclusively peaceful and promote international scientific cooperation.

Over the last six decades, research in Antarctica has provided many insights into climate change both past and present, as well as providing the basis for future predictions. In 2010 Antarctica Day was established to celebrate and promote this milestone in peaceful international partnership and scientific endeavor.
