   T   he night photograph of the "Endurance," held fast in the ice of the Weddell
Sea, is one of the most famous and enduring of the images to come out of
Shackleton’s expedition. In his diary entry for August 27, 1915, photographer
Frank Hurley wrote:

  "During the night take flashlight of ship beset by pressure. This necessitated some 20
flashes, one behind each salient pressure hummock, no less than 10 flashes being
required to satisfactorily
illuminate the ship itself.
Half blinded after the
successive flashes, I lost
my bearings amidst the
hummocks, bumping my
shins against projecting
ice points and stumbling
into deep snow drifts."

                              "This portrait of sir EHS was taken aboard the Endurance by Frank
                          Hurley late in 1914. Shackleton was 40 years old and had embarked on his
                          fourth expedition to the Antarctic. On the journey from South Georgia to the
                          Weddell Sea he sat for this portrait wearing a wool sweater and a pair of fur
                          sledging mitts."
                           Described by many of his contemporaries and historians as one of the greatest
                          polar explorer ever, Shackleton led three Antarctic expeditions after first going
                          south with Scott on the Discovery in 1902. Shackleton was knighted after the
                          British Antarctic Expedition of 1907-1909 (aboard the Nimrod) during which
                          he got to within 97 miles of the South Pole, and was the first to find a gateway
                          through the Trans-Antarctic mountains onto the forbidding polar plateau."
                           He is best remembered for his heroic leadership of the epic Endurance
                          Expedition (1914-1916) in which he brought all 27 men under his charge back to
                          safety after their ship was crushed by sea ice before ever reaching land.
                           This poster bears a quote from Shackleton,
                          "Never for me the lowered banner, never the last endeavour"
                           The mitts he wore in the portrait were connected at the cuffs by a large harness
                          that draped around his neck and across his chest. The harness served the same
                          purpose as the strings parents attach to their small children's mitts and gloves -
                          to prevent the loss of such important outerwear.

plained in his diary that sleep was frequently interrupted when Hurley drew
night watch duty.
 Night watch duty was an important task shared amongst all the crew members.
The prime responsibility of the night watchman was to watch out for fire on board
the ship, note changing weather and sea ice conditions while the rest of the crew slept.
 This photograph was taken in the dark of the Antarctic winter when the
Endurance was beset in the ice of the Weddell Sea.

 That first day they made less than one mile’s headway - a backbreaking effort. But
there were many more days of hauling ahead:
 "We all followed with the heavier boat on the composite sledge. It was terrific work to
keep it going. We all did our best but were practically exhausted by the time we reached
the new camp... barely 3/4 miles away." - Thomas Orde-Lees’ Diary
 The travel conditions on the sea ice were appalling. The soft, wet snow meant their
footing was unstable. They often sank up to their hips and soaked their boots. The
going was horrendous and their pace demoralizing. The huge efforts they were expending
were getting them nowhere.
  They established Ocean Camp. After a month’s waiting Shackleton ordered a resump-
tion of the march but conditions had worsened still. On December 27th, McNish, the
carpenter, dropped his trace and refused to carry on hauling the boat, perhaps demoralized
further by the recent loss of his beloved cat, Mrs. Chippy, to a bullet from Crean’s gun
(on Shackleton’s orders). McNish declared that because they were no longer on the ship,
he was not under contract nor anyone’s authority. This was a mutinous act in                                                                                    P11 Launching James Caird

East Cumberland Bay,is comprised of two separate large format plates. The
Endurance can be seen at anchor. Mt. Paget, South Georgia’s highest peak, rises
in the background.
 After the epic 17 day open boat journey from Elephant Island, the crew in the James
Caird landed on South Georgia’s desolate southern shore. To reach one of the whal-
ing stations on the north shore, Shackleton, Crean and Worsley made a 36 hour, 25
mile forced march across the rugged, glaciated spine of the island. They reached
Stromness on may 20, 1916 and made arrangements for the rescue of their comrades.



 We have twelve postcards to offer, all images from our current line of
posters. The cards are printed on a unique paper stock that is 100% tree-
free! This paper uses the waste of sugar cane stalks and the versatile,
renewable, hardy fibres of the hemp plant.

The paper is uncoated, further enhancing its environmental qualities,
while simultaneously giving the cards a special feel and look that accentu-
ates the historic theme.
 The cards may be purchased individually, or in sets of 12 (1 of each) and                                    PC03
24 (2 of each card).
Because it is not produced in the same volume as traditional wood-based
papers, the costs of producing these cards is slightly higher. Nonetheless we
are proud to offer these high quality cards at competitive prices.

T03 Ship Architecture

The architectural drawings of the
Endurance have been reproduced in
white on a navy blue, short sleeve t-shirt.
Mark Holmes, Endurance Designs’
artist, has created a wonderfully detailed
version of the ship’s drawings for the
front of this quality garment.
The now famous expedition vessel, a
wooden barquentine of 300 tons, was
built at the Framnaes shipyard in
Sandefjord, Norway during the summer of
1913. The ship was originally commissioned as the
Polaris, by shipowner Lars Christensen. Framnaes was
famous for their polar ships and in its day the Polaris was reputed to be one of
the strongest crafts ever built.
Shackleton bought the Polaris from Christensen in January 1914 for £11,600,
after Christensen’s partnership to run ice tours to Spitzbergen and east
Greenland fell through. Shackleton re-christened the ship "Endurance" after his
family motto, "By Endurance we Conquer".
