Pair of brown woollen socks used in Antarctica, circa 1954 - 1966. These long socks were the standard light weight socks. They were replaced by the shorter ski sock as the men wore long pyjama type undergarments.

This is part of Museum Victoria's collection of artefacts from the post-war era of scientific exploration of Antarctica.
