Set of 8 A6 notecards with a quote by Ernest Shackleton and his family's prophetic motto.
Throughout man's history in the Antarctic the dependency on tinned goods has been vital. Without this material and process no explorer or researcher would have survived. Still today provisions for the whole season that staff are stationed at Port Lockroy are sent out in advance of their arrival and canned produce makes up the bulk of the supplies.
It is therefore pertinent that these notecards with quotes by Sir Ernest Shackleton should be presented in a container made from the very metal on which he and hundreds others relied.
