115 years of uninterrupted Argentine permanence in Antarctica!
Today, Friday, February 22nd is the Argentina Antarctica Day and more than 115 years of uninterrupted Argentina stay in Antarctica!
On 22 February 1904, Argentine flag flames on the Laurie Island of the group of Orkney Islands, when the current Orcadas Base (WAP ARG-15) was inaugurated.
Very few people know that February 22nd is Argentina’s Antarctic Day even if, it’s already one hundred and fifteen years ago that Argentina sets his presence in Antarctica, of which the first forty years Argentines were the only permanent occupants!
Happy Argentina Antarctica Day to the Antarctic lowers all over the world
