A visitor to the Enduring Eye exhibition in Manchester has come into possession of a watch believed to have travelled with the Ross Sea Party on board the Aurora, and is inscribed with the following text:
went to Antarctica in
and was carried away
on the S. Y. Aurora on her
long drift returning
again when she relieved the party in
The watch owner has been unable to identify any family connections to the members of the Ross Sea Party. Any information about other similarly inscribed watches and their provenance would be welcomed - please email details.
