Alternative Name(s): Cap, Hat

Red balaclava with black lining, medium size. Made by Sea to Summit Pty Ltd and inscribed A.N.A.R.E. (Australian National Antarctic Research Expedition). The word 'ACE' is written on the front - perhaps the nickname of the wearer.

Used by staff at the Australian Antarctic Division, the balaclava was probably issued from, and returned to, a supply depot.

Provided to Museum Victoria by the Australian Antarctic Division in 2007 for an International Polar Year display at the Discovery Centre, Melbourne Museum.
