'This story relates to Bernard Ingleby's adventure as a nineteen year old as the "First Observer" in the team assembled by Meteorologist, Clement Lindley Wragge (q.v.) set up a weather observatory "Arctic Tent" on the summit of Mount Kosciusko on 4 December1897. The first 3 man team was (1) Bernard Ingleby, (2) Basil de Burgh Newth 2nd observer, (3) Captain Charles Iliff a Cape Moreton mariner (of Kangaroo Point) who due to ill health was later replaced by Harold Ingemann Jensen.

A "Weather Observatory Hut" was completed on 17 April 1898 and Ingleby and his two observers remained there through winter. Ingleby left the team in October, 1898.' Source: Adrian Ingleby.
