We are please to present, on behalf of the Isle of Man Post Office, a miniature sheet marking the centenary of the legendary Endurance Expedition, and paying tribute to the explorer Henry Worsley.
 
The miniature sheet comprises two 175p stamps, one featuring Frank Worsley, captain of the Endurance, and the other Henry Worsley who undertook the Shackleton Solo Expedition 100 years later. Henry Worsley tragically lost his life whilst attempting this first ever solo expedition, unsupported and unassisted crossing of the Antarctic landmass.
 
These stamps are set against images of the Endurance expedition by the renowned photographer Frank Hurley which highlight the extremes endured by Shackleton's crew.
 
The miniature sheet was printed using a special metallic overprinting technique to reproduce the effect of a silver nitrate photographic print of the period, while lending a contemporary feel to the graphic content.

My husband and I visited his grave on South Georgia.
An extremely brave man.
