'Shackleton's Last Great Journey’

 By Shaun Lewis

In August 1914, Shackleton and his men set out for the Antarctic, on board the Endurance, with the aim of completing the first crossing of the continent. Sadly their ship was trapped and destroyed by the ice leaving the party marooned thousands of miles from home. This talk will outline how the men survived a ten month ordeal, and how they were eventually recsued.
