Antarctic quest to find Shackleton's lost ship – BBC News

  1. My great-great-granduncle, Harry McNish, was the carpenter on the Endurance during this expedition. He modified the James Caird so that he and Shackleton – along with three others – could sail to South Georgia and send rescue for the rest of the men stuck on Elephant Island.
    Without the modifications that he made to the James Caird, the five men would have been unable to leave Elephant Island to seek rescue. For this alone, McNish was responsible for saving all of the men on the expedition.
    It's a shame that he didn't receive the Polar Medal to recognise his efforts – as Shackleton recommended that he shouldn't receive the medal due to Shackleton strongly disliking McNish as a result of their ongoing feuding during the expedition.
    He became destitute near the end of his life and died at the age of 56.
    There is a plaque that commemorates him – and his achievements – in the library of my hometown – Port Glasgow.

  8. I always remember the song they made from elephant Island whilst waiting for rescue
    Me name is frankie wild
    Me huts on elephant Isle
    Me walls without a single brick
    Me roofs without a tile
    But nevertheless
    I must confess
    By many many a mile
    It's the most palatial dwelling place
    You'll find on elephant Isle

  9. “Scott for scientific method, Amundsen for speed and efficiency but when disaster strikes and all hope is gone, get down on your knees and pray for Shackleton."

    Priestly or Cherry Gerard

  10. The Endurance's 'unreachability' is only the start of the difficulty. Even if it was in a hospitable part of the ocean, the fact is that the grinding ice floes completely mangled the smallish wooden ship before sending it to the bottom. For them to be able to find or recover anything would be a 'miracle within a miracle'. But then again, Shackleton was a man of miraculous achievements, against the odds!

  11. For a joint scientific and geographical piece of organization, give me Scott; for a Winter Journey, Wilson; for a dash to the Pole and nothing else, Amundsen: and if I am in the devil of a hole and want to get out of it, give me Shackleton every time. They will all go down in polar history as leaders, these men." [Apsley Cherry-Garrard. Vol I, Page viii, Preface, Worst Journey in the World, first edition.]
