Wordie Hut was established on Winter Island in 1947 as "Base F-Argentine islands" and closed in 1954. A new base also named "Base F-Argentine islands"and renamed later Faraday replaced the original station on Galindez Island.

The normal occupancy of the station was 4 to 5 people. Meteorology was the main scientific research but this programme was transfered to Station F-Faraday. Then Wordie Hut was carefully maintained and used as a refuge.
