Presented to King George V
The Quest expedition was intended to circumnavigate Antarctica, and to fix the position of various islands. Unfortunately Shackleton died of a heart attack on 5 January 1922, shortly after the ship reached South Georgia. Frank Wild subsequently took command and wrote this expedition narrative on their return to England.
