8 November, 1921 – St Paul’s Rocks
Tuesday 8 November, 1921
Quest stops at St Paul’s Rocks, at the equator. Wilkins and Douglas make the most of the opportunity to investigate the rocks and wildlife. Wilkins is assisted by Marr and Dell, and Douglas by Hussey and Carr who also send up meteorological balloons. Wild, Macklin, Jeffrey and Eriksen man the landing boat. Sharks swarm around, exotic fish are caught by the boat party, but many of the fish are taken by the sharks before they can be hauled in.
