We are supposed to believe that Antarctic glaciers have only recently started to recede.
Back in 1932, they knew that the process had begun in the 19thC.
Sir James Ross undertook his expeditions to the Antarctic in the 1840’s.
Interestingly, Bernacchi accompanied Scott on the 1901-04 Antarctic expedition. and Scott was best man at his colleague’s wedding in 1906. Bernacchi was invited to go on Scott’s ill fated second expedition, but declined due to family commitments.
