Tent Assignments

“We had two pole tents and three hoop tents. I took charge of the small pole tent, No. 1, with Hudson, Hurley, and James as companions; Wild had the small hoop tent, No. 2, with Wordie, McNeish, and McIlroy. These hoop tents are very easily shifted and set up. The eight forward hands had the large hoop tent, No. 3; Crean had charge of No. 4 hoop tent with Hussey, Marston, and Cheetham; and Worsley had the other pole tent, No. 5, with Greenstreet, Lees, Clark, Kerr, Rickenson, Macklin, and Blackborrow, the last named being the youngest of the forward hands.”
