I am pleased to announce the publication of our paper on the Frank Worsley's log of the journey from Elephant Island to South Georgia Island. You will find it online, here
In the paper, you will find high quality imaged of Worsley's log, a definitive transcript and an explanation of the parts. Yes, you finally get to see the log itself, something I have kept deliberately hidden for years.
Some may ask why we did not publish elsewhere. It was a two fold decision. Firstly, the log itself resides at the museum and secondly, to publish those high quality images would have cost us a fortune. By agreement with Canterbury Museum, we were able to avoid those fees.
We look forward to any feedback you may have
