    Yesterday I saw a four hour film on Shackleton`s voyage on Endurance, from 1914 to 1917, to the Antarctic, the wreck of the ship and the long journey to get help and rescue, one of the greatest feats of survival. In March I went on a trip to the Antarctic and followed some of the trip that Shackleton did from the Weddel Sea to Elephant Island and on to South Georgia. He died there in Grytviken, 5 January 1922, on his last expedition with a heart attack before he could set off.
    The photos are of Endurance being crushed by the ice, Ice bergs in the Weddel sea this year and me at Point Wild, named after one of his men, where they waited 4 months 20 days for rescue, and the grave of Shackleton in Grytviken, the small cemetery there has around twenty graves of whalers and sailors, one grave is the one man killed, an Argentino Sailor, by the Marines in the Falklands war. Interesting place.
    Whenever people visit Shackleton`s grave, they have a little service ending with a tot of Rum and then the final tot is poured onto his grave. I am sure he would appreciate it.

    If I remember right Captain, tha Argentine sailor was killed on the Santa Fe, it was an Argentine submarine. A boot neck, thought he was tampering with some stuff and shot him. Less said about the Marines the better.

    They were brave fool hardy guys in that expedition. Nice photos.

    You are correct Pablo. he was on the Submarine, and he made a false move, I was told there, towards some kind of valve, and in any kind of armed conflict it is not recomended to make a false move in front of your armed captors.
