George Finch and oxygen equipment
To climb with or without oxygen soon became an issue for the Mount Everest Committee. Captain Finch can be seen here with the oxygen equipment that he so firmly believed in, but had fallen foul of some members of the committee for their refusal to back this apparatus and their belief in "unfair sport" by using it.
