Saturday 6th October 2007, Henry Worsley's local paper have picked up on our story, here's a link to what they had to say about it:
Some early history on how we got here,
The planning for the Expedition began shortly after Will Gow appeared in Radio 4's 'Excess Baggage' of October 2005, where he anounced his desire to re-enact the 1909 Nimrod Expedition. Team-members soon got on board after family members heard the broadcast... which goes to show that radio still gets the required results even in the internet era. Thanks go to Sandi Toksvig and crew.
Saturday 4th August 2007, The Telegraph newspaper have covered our story today, you can use the link below to access the article from their website:
ITEMS FROM HENRY WORSLEY'S POLAR COLLECTION
This photograph, one of my favourites, was taken for a San Francisco newspaper in November 1916 when Ernest Shackleton and Frank Worsley were attempting to raise funds to rescue the Ross Sea Party. It was a bruising task for them both as the world was focussed on the Great War and little else. Shackleton wrote to his beloved Emily, "I have simply been up to my eyes in work trying to get money here but it has been no go". It had been "beastly work".
That feeling of exasperation can be seen on the faces of these two men and I cannot help thinking what they must been through. The toll of the extreme hardships of the Endurance expedition and the gamble of the boat journey can, I believe, be seen on their faces and offer a rare glimpse of the two great men outside the more formal portraits and group photographs that are more well known.
