I write the occasional articles for military journals on historical matters (don't worry, I'm not a journo) and I have been researching a bit about how the British exploited Nazi technologies and scientific/engineering personnel at the end of the war. This, regretfully, has exposed me to the fruit-loop end of the internet conspiracy spectrum - NAZI 'anti-gravity' aircraft, 'spectral weapons', 'the Bell' (an alleged fission device) you name it. However I did encounter a few references to German expeditions to Queen Maude Land in Antarctica in c 1938, and alleged resupply of a 'secret undergound base' on the continent by U-boats. An expedition did take place but evidence that there was a permament base there are scant, to say the least. Bundesarchiv have drawn a blank but I found this rather engaging 'interview' with an alleged member of the SAS (who else, of course?) who claims to have taken part in a frankly bizarre mission in Antarctica in late 1945. Here's the link: Tin foil hats on/ @ antarctica.greyfalcon.us /Tin foil hats off Some parts of the story read well but others are completly bonkers (such as being flown to the Falklands in 1945 - no mean feat 37 years later in 1982) and the 'Polar Men' ripping the throats out of British troops... Lie back and have a read...but if anyone has any verifiable information on a permanent Nazi presence in Antartica, let me know...even better if anyone had a relative die on 'Active Service' in Antartica in 1945, I'd love to hear about it.
