This monument on Petermann Island is a tribute to three scientists who were swept out to sea on an ice flow in 1982 after seeking refuge in a nearby hut. Each of the men had two doses of morphine in their individual supply kits. “The cruel thing is, it requires three doses per man to do the job.” - Robert K Headland, Expedition Historian.
