On 30 September 1924 the schooner Kathleen Annie ran aground on the Muckle Green Holm, south of Eday, with a cargo of spirit. Her master was Commander Frank Worsley, a man of immense courage who had captained Shackleton’s ship Endurance in the Antarctic. When the ship was crushed by ice, he skippered the small boat that went on an epic journey to South Georgia to seek rescue. He would later command the Quest on Shackleton’s final voyage, a century ago. Local historian Patricia Long tells the story of the Kathleen Annie and Frank Worsley’s other links with Orkney. Polar historian Dr Maria Pia Casarini describes his rescue mission with Shackleton: six men in an open boat, through blizzard and hurricane and mountainous seas.
