    I copied Worsley's complete diary to a pdf file.

    Despite all of the hardships Worsley kept a stiff upper lip. He wrote "This day was King Georges Assession 6 years ago. God save the King!"  After all, this was the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition. Although Worsley was born in NZ he was a British subject. NZ did not become fully independant until 1948 when the NZ Parliament became party to the pre-ww2 Statute of Westminster. Worsley died in 1943 so he was never a NZ citizen.  Within my living memory some NZers called Britain "Home" although if anyone did that today they would probably be subject to ridicule and derision.

    As an aside, while Shackleton was making heroic efforts to save his men, on the other side of the world millions were being slaughtered on the Western front. I would rather read about Shackleton then WW1 politicians and Generals.
