Shackelton, Hurtigruten and the Antarctic

Little did Sir Ernest Shackelton realise that when he set out with 28 men on his trans-Antarctic expedition in 1914 that, 100 years later, an exhibition to commemorate his great courage would be the backdrop to a promotion by Hurtigruten in the Royal St George Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire.
