Hi Neil/Len,Yes, Horace Dall was an extraordinary character who was as well known for his travelogues as he was for his astronomy. He met his wife in Patagonia and the Journal contained frequent reports of his trips. The Iceland cycling expedition is mentioned in Jim Hysom’s very interesting summary of Horace’s life (JBAA 97,2,1987) which is worth a read. You can get it from ADS here.I’ve just had a look at the website and the photos and descriptions of that tour show very clearly what kind of man he was. Nick.
