Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton CVO OBE (1874-1922) was an Irish-born polar explorer who was involved in four major British expeditions to the Antarctic (leader of three). He was a principal figure in the period known as the ‘Heroic Age’ of Antarctic exploration. This illustrated lecture by Stephen Scott-Fawcett MA (Cantab) FRGS will ‘explore’ Shackleton - the man and the ‘myth’.
Stephen is editor of the James Caird Society Journal – named after the 23’ life boat James Caird in which Shackleton set out to rescue his trapped crew.
This event is at Our Lady of Lourdes Church Hall.
