Originally named the Eastern party, a small group of seamen under the command of Lt. Victor Campbell with one scientist, Geologist Raymond Priestley, intended to land and explore King Edward VII land to the East of the Ross ice barrier in 1911. Things turned out somewhat differently… Faced with disaster and starvation, the party overwintered in an ice cave ‘living off the land’ but all survived in an extraordinary tale of courage and endurance.
