Diving for Treasure: Singapore Style - a video clip of the Southern Expedition

A video clip of the Southern Expedition is now online on the Shell YouTube channel.
It features some of the key activities at the Southern Expedition.

The dredge surveys of the bottom of the sea in Singapore were one of the highlights of the Expedition.
