Toys heading south

From toys aboard Flk “Balaena” heading south. The crew sits on the boards that will later be posted on blubber. The lady we see are sick sister Esther, who was the only woman in the field. The other ladies are a couple of handsome guys from the crew! You can read more about her story in the journal nursing.
