‘Alan Noake’s Shackleton’s Scouts might best be described as a cleverly – researched and illustrated ‘ working dossier’ celebrating Scouting’s ‘brush’ with one of the greatest figures of the Heroic Age of Antarctic exploration, Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton.

The Boss together with his wife,  Lady Emily Shackleton, were fervent supporters of the nascent Boy Scouts and Girl Guides Movements (established in 1907 and 1910 respectively).

I am convinced Ernest and Emily would have both enjoyed reading this timely Centennial account of Scouting’s derring-do in the Great White South.’
