1952-54 British North Greenland Expedition (Commander James Simpson)
Primarily a scientific mission although most of the 30 men involved were British military. It involved studies of glaciology, meteorology, geology and physiology. Gravimetric and seismological surveys were also made, along with work on radio wave propagation. Another purpose was to gather information on carrying out military operations under Arctic conditions.
