. This was all done without a single shot being fired and without any casualties. The Norwegians continued to work as if nothing had happened and made no effort to resist. The ''Pinguin'' then made a five-day dash at top-speed to the north-west past Bouvet Island and over half-way to the South Sandwich Islands. Her wireless operators sent a long coded message home knowing that every wireless station in the region would pick it up and discover his position. The ''Pinguin'' then sailed back to the captured Norwegian fleet. The ''Pinguin'' intercepted a variety of British signals confirming the success of the ploy. The fifteen-ships set off eastwards with the ''Pinguin'' in the lead and the three factory and supply ships at the rear. The ''Pinguin'' could not provide prize crews for all the ships.

The so-called Kerguelen sub-continent may have had tropical flora and fauna about 50 million years ago. The Kerguelen sub-continent finally sank 20 million years ago and is now one to two kilometers below sea level. Kerguelen's sedimentary rocks are similar to ones found in Australia and India, indicating they were all once connected. Scientists hope that studying the Kerguelen sub-continent will help them discover how Australia, India, and Antarctica broke apart.

Mouflon were introduced to the islands of Corsica, Sardinia, Rhodes and Cyprus during the neolithic period, perhaps as feral domesticated animals, where they have naturalized in the mountainous interiors of these islands over the past few thousand years, giving rise to the subspecies known as European mouflon (''O. aries musimon''). In the island of Cyprus the moulfon or Agrino became a different and endemic species, which only found in Cyprus, the '''Cyprus moulfon''' (Ovis orientalis ophion). The Cyprus moulfon is about 3000 animals, only. They are now rare on the islands but classified as feral animals by the IUCN. s appearance was changed to take on the identity of the Norwegian liner ''Tamerlane''.

The islands, along with Adélie Land, the Crozet Islands and the Amsterdam (Amsterdam Island) and Saint Paul (Île Saint-Paul) Islands are part of the French Southern and Antarctic Lands and are administered as a separate district. There are no indigenous inhabitants, but France maintains a permanent presence of 45 to 100 scientists, engineers and researchers.

The main island, Grande Terre, is , slightly smaller than Puerto Rico. The climate is raw and chilly with frequent high winds throughout the year. The surrounding seas are generally rough and they remain ice-free year-round. There is no airport on the islands, so all travel and transport from the outside world is conducted by ship. They are 450 km (280 mi) northwest of the uninhabited Heard Island and McDonald Islands.
