Risking his life needlessly


“It is very good of him to go off like this for our benefit, but as we could quite well exist here through the winter, provided we lay in an adequate store of penguins, and made for Deception Island next spring, only 200 miles off, I think he is really risking his life needlessly.”

— Thomas Orde-Lees
