Playing the giddy goat

“[Why Shackleton] was allowed to go playing the giddy goat at the South Pole in the interests of nobody and nothing but himself, why was he allowed to take away useful men whose services might have been utilised in war… there are men on Elephant Island who might have been more useful and quite as much entertained in Flanders and Salonika. We have very little use for Sir. E. Shackleton.”

— The Strathspey Herald
