Mount Paget, South Georgia. A British naval party made the first ascent of the west peak of Mount Paget (9565 feet) in the Allardyce Range on December 13, 1960. The party, Captain V. N. Stevenson, Lt. Comdr. M. K. Burley and Corporal Todd, were landed by helicopter near the peak from H.M.S. Protector. Apparently they did not reach the 9625-foot main summit, the highest point on the island, which was previously attempted in 1954.
