Ernest Henry Shackleton autograph

E. H Shackleton autograph - Ernest Henry Shackleton. The autograph is on a packing case that forms part of the partition wall adjacent to the bunk that he used in the 'Nimrod' expedition hut at Cape Royds. The signature is actually upside down, but the consensus view is apparently that it was done as 'graffiti' in situ whilst he was lying in the bunk, rather than earlier before the bunk wall was constructed.
