Have you got what it takes? Shackleton needs a crew….



shackadvert2

Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton. A british explorer who led three expeditions to the Antarctic. He was one of the greatest adventurers of all time.

This was the ‘supposed’ ad he placed in a British newspaper looking for crew to accompany him on one of his expeditions. The authenticity of this ad is doubtful.

I love the words. Fake or not.

The men who did accompany Shackleton on his three expeditions were brave, intrepid men lured by adventure and with no concern for personal safety.

Extraordinary men in extraordinary times.

Don’t you love it? I’m gonna get this printed onto a t-shirt 🙂
