Story

(acc. no. T1035)

Hamish MacInnes is a Scottish mountaineer, author and pioneer in mountain rescue. As well as establishing Glencoe Mountain Rescue he developed a folding stretcher used in mountain rescues worldwide.

MacInnes developed all-metal ice axes for commercial use after aiding the retrieval of the bodies of three ice climbers who had fallen to their deaths when the wooden shafts of their ice axes had broken. His ice axes revolutionised mountain safety.
