“Sir Ernest Shackleton’s final Quest expedition marked the end of what has now become known as the heroic age of exploration. In 1921 King George V was on the throne and David Lloyd George was prime minister. Back then two boy scouts were selected from around 1700 other scouts to represent Scouting, King and Country by joining Shackleton on the expedition of a lifetime to Antarctica. Alan tells the story from the perspective of the two Scouts and how it changed their lives to be part of this important historic expedition. He then gives an overview of his plans for Kent Scouts to recreate a similar research expedition 100 years later in 2021.”
