Sir Ernest Shackleton, Polar explorer, led three expeditions to the Antarctic and is known for his incredible endurance and leadership in the face of unimaginable adversity. His expeditions rarely achieved their original objectives but his ability to take the toughest decisions, lead his men and bring them to safety when fate had other plans, speaks of a man with rare leadership qualities. 'By Endurance We Conquer' was the Shackleton family’s motto and it is engraved here on a gold plated pocket watch, similar to the type used by the great adventurer.
