The Rescue



The Shackleton Expedition that we have been looking at this week was eventually rescued. This picture shows the point of rescue when boats were seen that would pick up the survivors and take them back to safety.

  3. One more comment for today; It is sad to know that after surviving this amazing ordeal, many of the members of the crew went on to perish in WW1.

  4. An amazing story. Did Shackleton ever write his own account?
