Becoming burnt

“On one occasion a wonderful stew made from seal meat, with two or three tins of Irish stew that had been saved from the ship, fell into the fire through the bottom of the oil drum that we used as a saucepan becoming burnt out on account of the sudden intense heat of the fire below. We lunched that day on one biscuit and a quarter of a tin of bully beef each, frozen hard.”

— Frank Worsley
