diesel Shackleton Antarctic Expedition: Songs? (58* d) RE: Shackleton Antarctic Expedition: Songs? 11 Dec 02

I don't have the book to hand - it's out on loan and not due back for quite a while.....

However the book is 'Antarctic Hero' by Author Michael Smith, and all about a Tom Crean from Kerry who accompanied both Shackleton and Scott and arguably the linch-pin of the expeditions.

In the book it mentions Tom as constantly singing and humming and sometimes to the annoyance of others (folk music - really ??)

Perhaps if you can locate the book or Author - there will be some more solide info.
