The Long, Long Drift Featured Print

The Long, Long Drift

Illustration by Raymond Sheppard to an article entitled: The Long, Long Drift by John Prebble, relating to the The Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition of 1914-17, also known as the Endurance Expedition. This feat is considered the last major expedition of the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration. Conceived by Sir Ernest Shackleton, the expedition was an attempt to make the first land crossing of the Antarctic continent. On 30th October 1915, a march started across the Antarctic ice, following the crushing of the Endurance between the ever-shifting ice plates - two of the ship's lifeboats were carried on sledges, as depicted in this illustration"

Titanic - Lifeboats needed to save lives on board ships

A diagram published in the Illustrated London News following the disaster of the sinking of White Star passenger liner, RMS Titanic showing the ratio of lifeboat capacity to passenger numbers on board various ships, raising questions about the safety precautions. The left hand column shows the the worst culprits including the Mauretania (only 976 lifeboat capacity for 2972 passengers) and Cunard's Franconia (only 962 lifeboat capacity for 3115 passengers). The Titanic's sister ship, the Olympic did not fare much better than its ill-fated sibling having only 20 lifeboats to hold 1176 passengers, despite an overall passenger number of 3447. Date: 1912
