Sir Edmund Hillary

This is my Grandads friend Terry with Sir Edmund Hillary (Sir Edmund Hillary is on the right in the blue jacket!)

These pictures were taken when Sir Edmund Hillary was about 83 so he looks different. Terry was friends with Hillary. Terry said that he was a kind man who was easy to talk to! here are some more pictures of him...

  1. Wow! Thanks for sharing these precious photos River. It's amazing that he could still cope with the challenges of getting to Antarctica at that age! How did Terry get to know him? Why was he at Scott Base?

    1. Hi Mrs Smith! Terry was at Scott base as he is a doctor who looked after Sir Edmund Hillary because he was getting older.
