  3. A great hero,I have his last journal and people tend to look at his failure and forget about the scientific expedition that was a main part of the voyage.Things that are still being looked at today.
    A true explorer with courage and dignity,all of them.
    I still grit my teeth sometimes when I read about the other party who were stuck at the same time,they survived but the six men[3 Officers and 3 men] had to mess separately and even had to construct the outside toilets with one for 3 men and another for the 3 Officers!
    Class distinction at the pole,you have to wonder!
