 “For a joint scientific and geographical piece of organization, give me Scott; for a winter journey, Wilson, for a dash to the Pole and nothing else, Amundsen: and if I am in the devil of a hole and want to get out of it, give me Shackleton every time.”

Apsley Cherry-Garrard, ‘Worst Journey in the World’. British Antarctic (Terra Nova) Expedition 1910 – 1913 led by Captain Scott.
