Vintage video of explorers on Ernest Shackleton's antarctic journey – Daily Mail


Pictured here are some of the world’s first and bravest Polar explorers, including Frank Wild (left), a Yorkshireman who was second in command on board Ernest Sackleton’s ship when he died of a heart attack. His own cremated remains were later placed alongside Shackleton’s grave, with the inscription: ‘Sachkleton’s right-hand man.’ Tom Crean, an Irishman (centre), also served under Shackleton and Captain Scott, and took part in the doomed South Pole expedition. He is pictured here with dogs used in one of Shackleton’s expeditions, though they were all later shot to conserve food when the mission went awry. Pictured right is Robert Edwin Peary, and American who claimed to be the first man to the North Pole, though this has largely been discredited. It is thought he was just 60 miles away when he turned back.
