The drift of Shackleton’s ‘Aurora’, March 11, 1916: “. . . Stenhouse lowered a jury rudder. . ..”

–from Shackleton’s account “South” drawn from the log of J. R. Stenhouse—

“Early next morning Stenhouse lowered a jury rudder, with steering pennants to drag through the water, and moved north to north-west through heavy pack. We made sixteen miles on an erratic course, the spent an anxious night with the ship setting back into the pack and being pounded heavily.”
