Shackleton (1874-1922) had just returned from his Nimrod "Farthest South" Expedition, and was about to embark on his "Endurance" TransAntarctic Expedition in 1914-17. Taken in the year of Scott reaching the Pole, Shackleton was already planning his next great journey, although it was not across Antarctica, but after the Endurance had been crushed in the ice, it was the open boat journey and his own and his crew's personal endurance that was remembered.
