Damned Souls in Torment

“[It’s] like an enormous train with squeaky axles being shunted with much bumping & clattering. Mingled with this were the sound of steamer whistles starting to blow … & underfoot moans & groans of damned souls in torment. A constant undertone as of a heavy distant surf is heard when the louder noises … cease.”

— Frank Worsley
