Many thanks for all that info, which I have passed on to my friend.

It was the Ice Poles specifically that were the subject of the query, as he had read about their use in the primary sources consulted during the course of his research, without finding out much more than the fact that they were employed when beset by ice. The illustration from the Groenland expedition, although a century later, seems the most useful picture found so far.
