Worsley specialized in ramming

“Each watch had its characteristics. Worsley specialised in ramming, and I have a sneaking suspicion that he often went out of his way to find a nice piece of floe at which he could drive at full speed and cut in two; he loved to feel the shock, the riding up, and the sensation, as the ice gave and we drove through.”

— Alexander Macklin
