Abstract:

"Bert Lincoln was an Able Bodied ordinary seaman on board the SY Aurora during a trip lasting just under three months from Hobart to Commonwealth Bay Antarctica and back again to relieve Mawson's expedition during its second summer, the middle of a three summer and two winter expedition... ...What follows is Bert's diary of the voyage. A far as I am aware this is the only such account of an ordinary sailor onboard an expedition or relief ship during the Heroic Age of Antarctic exploration. Often men such as Bert were not even included on lists of the ship's personnel which only tended to list the ships officers, expedition scientists and the support personnel who spent their time on the base. The diary is in the possession of Sharyn Smith from Australia the great niece of Bert Lincoln... ...Sharyn states: "Apparently they weren't to have any writing material on board as the ship had their own news reporters, but he wrote it anyway" ... which goes some way to explaining why accounts such as this one are so rare. It is typed it as it is written. There is an occasional word or letters that I have not been able to interpret, at these points I have written a row of dashes ----- or wrapped question marks around the word where I have ?guessed?"
