October 1914: Frank Hurley reconnects with Frank Wild on the “Endurance”

–from Frank Hurley’s account “Shackleton’s Argonauts”–

“Frank Wild, my old comrade of the Mawson Expedition, was second in command, and of him I write in admiration. With more Antarctic experience to his credit than any living man, he was a tower of strength to his commander, and a capable substitute when the responsibility of leadership fell on him. Wild was not a big man, but for sheer grit, tenacity of purpose and comradeship he would have been difficult to match.”
