Just letting you know that Arthur Giese, member 358, died in Wagga Wagga on 9th February 2017, aged 90 yrs 8 mths.

Arthur hadn’t been going to Midwinter Dinners over the period since his Heard Island trip. So when he went to Mawson, after a break of 31 years, we went every year he was here until he went to the nursing home. Many of the guys like Chompers still call in on their way to Melbourne. We have a dedicated Antarctic room and he had big framed pictures on his wall in the nursing home of real scenes from Mawson and of our son, Phil Giese, taken down south with ice on his beard.
