Probably the most recognisable of newsclippings, this one attributed to Ernest Shackleton, never actually appeared as an advert purportedly reading as follows:
“Men wanted for hazardous journey. Low wages, bitter cold, long hours of complete darkness. Safe return doubtful. Honour and recognition in case of success”

He also never placed this advert:

“Man wanted for three hazardous journeys. Willing to risk own life to save others in bitter cold. Must have a sense of humour and inspirational skills to motivate others. Honour and recognition doubtful in the event of success”

If he had, we know the man who took the job

Newsclipping 2

Appearing in the Guardian on 7th November 1913, this newsclipping reveals the support enjoyed by Joseph Foster Stackhouse for his forthcoming British Antarctic Expedition of 1914. It also reveals the close friendship he had with Captain Scott, news of who’s death on the return journey from the South Pole had been announced in February 1913. As revealed in the book, Joseph Foster Stackhouse had earmarked Tom Crean as one of his most important recruits to the expedition, yet Shackleton won the battle for Crean’s services and Stackhouse postponed his plans to go South until the following year, 1915.
