Description

The University of Liverpool and the Embassy of Chile invite you to a special lecture by Prof Fernando Wilson (PhD) and networking reception to mark the centenary of the rescue of the crew from the ship Endurance. 

One of the most dramatic chapters of Antarctic exploration ended in the port of Punta Arenas on the third of September 1916, following the rescue of 22 crew members of the ship Endurance, taken from Elephant Island by the Chilean Navy ship Yelcho. 

On the centenary of the rescue of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s crew, Professor Fernando Wilson, an expert on Chilean Naval history, will explore in depth the successful operation led by Captain Luis Pardo in 1916.

The lecture will take place 5.30pm-6.30pm followed by a drinks reception. Tickets are free, registration is essential.
