In reading Worsley's 'Diary", we encounter a JOKE, written in his own hand!
The lads have finally landed upon Elephant Island, the sense of relief of being upon dry land for the first time in over a year is palpable.
Worsley writes that Elephant Island "should be spelled El of an Island" (read this with your best impression of an English/British accent.)
He obviously thought this such a stellar joke that he wrote the name again, in fine handwriting. Attached.
