    Elephant Island - Proposed Relief Expedition
    From: David C
    Date: 2017 Dec 16, 22:58 -0800

    Here are some papers relating to a proposed Elephant Island relief expedition. There is reference to digital communication between Wellington and London (telegram) but the copy of Fairweather's orders was sent by snail mail - dated 10th Aug 1916 and received in NZ on 25th Sept 1916.

    Note that even in 1916 copyright was important. I suspect that in 1916 the Admiralty was desperate for some good PR.

    One of the letters was signed by W Graham Greene. Wikipedia states that the author Graham Greene as born in 1904 so (unfortunately) it was not him.
