Duncan Carse – South Georgia

The first bronze of Duncan Carse is now on permanent display at South Georgia Museum, South Atlantic, following a purchase appeal co-ordinated by the South Georgia Association. The role of Duncan Carse in the Grahamland Peninsular Expedition was recognised by the Silver Polar Medal and clasp in 1939. He was awarded a second clasp in 1982 for the leadership of the South Georgia Surveys, the mapping of which was of immense value during the Falklands conflict. After the war, he was one of the voices of the BBC Radio star Dick Barton, Special Agent and he continued as a broadcaster on both radio and television into the 1980s. His Antarctic contribution is acknowledged through the naming of Carse Point and the 2300m Mount Carse on South Georgia.
