Verso: No. 28 SIR ERNEST SHACKLETON (1874-1922). | SHACKLETON'S life is the thrilling story of a great explorer, whose unconquerable spirit so inspired his fellows that he made them invincible. The epic story of stamina is surely that 16 day journey in a 23 foot boat across 750 miles of turbulent sub-Antarctic ocean, the most tempestuous ocean in the world. | Ask for STAMINA SELF-SUPPORTING TROUSERS STAMINA CLOTHES ARE TAILORED FROM CRUSADER CLOTH
