Furling the Fore Course Sail, 1929

Framed 450mm x 400mm

Crew members working in the rigging of Discovery during the British, Australian and New Zealand Antarctic Research Expedition (BANZARE) 1929-1931, Discovery’s final trip to Antarctica. Taken by official photographer Frank Hurley. The expedition’s brief was twofold: to chart the coastlines, islands and rocks between Queen Mary Land and Enderby Island and to “plant the British Flag wherever you find it practicable to do so”. Whole new lands were discovered and charted, a mass of geological and zoological samples were collected and several chunks of territory claimed on behalf of the British Government.


Taken by the official photographer Frank Hurley.

This product is framed with an authentic piece of Discovery decking removed during renovations. Certificate of Authentication included with purchase.
