Party: British Royal Society Expedition


The British Royal Society for the Advancement of Natural Knowledge began a six-month expedition to the Protectorate in mid-1965, concentrating on Guadalcanal, Makira, Isabel and Kolombangara, together with a marine party that planned to concentrate on offshore areas of those and other islands. The Expedition's leader, E.J.H. Corner, climbed Guadalcanal's Mount Gallego, after which a party went to Wainoni Bay, Makira, and to Thousand Ships Bay, Isabel and nearby San Jorge Island to begin fieldwork.
