“…both [islands] exactly on the bearings I had said they would be; and Sir Ernest congratulates me on the accuracy of my navigation under circumstances of some difficulty and after 2 days of Dead Reckoning, while working in and out amongst pack ice with no very accurate means of taking Compass courses & lying to for 2 nights at the mercy of the winds and currents.”

— Frank Worsley
