David and others - I'm trying to keep up with this topic and wish I'd been following it when vsiting the SPRI in Cambridge last year. If it helps I could go back, about 60nM, and research specific documents but would need some guidance.
I will be revisiting the Alexander Turnbull Library to copy some critical sections for Brad. If there are parts of the microfilm copy that Brad cannot decypher it may be useful to have someone look at the original.
I believe that Worsley's wife gifted his diaries to the SPRI. Maybe she also donated other documents such as his "epitome"? Having someone visit the SPRI could be very productive.
Maybe you could place yourself on "standby"? It will be up to Brad to ask for your help - at your convenience of course (-;
