Some extremely rare photos from Christmas decorations 1964. Roxie Howard photographed slides provided by Dick Perry and sent them in. The manger display was made in the wood shop at Kagnew Station and the display was outside SRU-9. Thanks to Roxie and Dick for these gems: [1] | [2] | [3] | [4]

Bill O'Ryan shows there were other ways to get around Kagnew, here on his bicycle. Bill was quite a linguist, but unfortunately has left us. Check out his bio listing on the Memorial Wall.
