Image Description

"Men wanted for hazardous journey. Low wages, bitter cold, long hours of complete darkness. Safe return doubtful. Honour and recognition in event of success."

More than 5000 applications for this advertisement, including the one by 'three sporty girls', and 27 men selected to join Ernest Shackleton to the 'Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition' aboard the 'Endurance' in 1914, plus Mrs. Chippy, the cat.
When the Endurance get trapped in the ice in the Weddell Sea began their odyssey.
Shackleton took back home all of his crew, but not Mrs. Chippy who had to be sacrified with the weakests dogs when the things got realy thoug.
