Andrew, after Bransfield Kevin Vicars was a cook on John Biscoe. I later saw him as a relief cook on STS Sir Winston Churchill. I've not heard of him for sometime. I seem to remember that he had a flat in the Bournemouth area.

I was working the radio at Rothera in summer 1980. We were wating for the Branny to arrive for the end of season relief when Hugh O'Gorman came on the radio "We may be delayed a bit, we seem to have run aground!" We all rushed up to Rothera Point to see the ship listing, very alarmingly to starboard. She had apparently traversed two rocky outcrops at 8 knots resulting in a huge underwater gash.

I sailed south in the Branny - October 1979 and returned in her May 1981. I remember Tim Leggett, Captain Cole and Stewart Laurence -whatever happened to Kevin Vicars? Last time I saw her I was with the FCO in Montevideo and had he pleasure of going aboard to take the official Embassy papers. I was at Rothera base when she hit submerged rocks and then sailed north in her to Argentine Islands. Happy days!

I sailed on the maiden voyage of the Bransfield. She took me to Halley Bay where I served as a tractor / diesel mechanic for two years. I returned to Southampton in May 73. The most fun I have ever had.

My dad sailed on the Bransfield, it was before I was born in 1982- so it would be late 70's early 80's. His name is Paul Herschell. Be nice to know if anybody remembers him?
