Antarctic Expedition, Belgium

In a small barn on the outskirts of a Belgian town lie 3 Tucker Snowcat Type 743s.
The beasts were a part of a Dutch/ Belgian Antarctic Expedition in 1966.

The Tucker wagons serviced the Roi Baudoin Base which was part of the Dutch/Belgian Antarctic Expedition 1957-1967.

The base and wagons fulfilled the role as a geophysical observatory and as an operating base for geographical, glaciological, and geological mapping of the neighbouring coastal and mountain areas.

The base then closed in 1967.
