Shackleton recruiting poster

“Officers wanted for hazardous journey. Small Wages. Bitter cold. Long months of complete darkness. Constant danger. Safe return doubtful. Honour and recognition in case of success.”

-- from a recruiting poster by British explorer Ernest Shackleton for his 1914 Antarctica expedition.
