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"
