Michael Talbot - Ullswater, The Lake District, 1963

I was a member of Mallory Patrol on Course U76 during the winter of 1963. Traditionally the day started with a quick dip in Lake Ullswater - this winter the lake was frozen solid and despite best efforts with Sledge Hammers, there was no way we were going to break the ice or swim in the water. The days started with very cold showers instead!
