He was an nractic explorer. He was on three of the great expeditions in the first two decades of the 20th century.

You're welcome mon ami!

Love the dogs on the statue and what a cheerful-looking pub. Now I'm off to look up who he was!

I love the South Pole Inn! My kind of place in the middle of nowhere. And the statue. Wonderful post, Jams.
