by Edward Shackleton.

When that famous explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton died at sea in 1922 his son was a schoolboy. Today, Edward Shackleton, a young man still, is earning a name for himself in the same sphere as his father. In 1932 he went to Sarawak with the Oxford University Expedition and in 1934 he organised and accompanied the Oxford University Expedition to Ellesmere Island in the Arctic. He gave his first radio talk early this year, and since then he has come to the microphone several times to describe some of his experiences.
