We Pulled the Three Boats a Little Higher on the Beach
The James Caird, the Dudley Docker and the Stancomb Wills, after the first landing on Elephant Island.

Rough Sketch Map of Landing Place and First Camp at C. Valentine, Elephant Island
Landing on Elephant Island is a difficult task at any time, there are shoals in the sea, steep cliffs surrounding the island and the waves are frequently large and dangerous

The First Drink and Hot Food for Three and a Half Days
On arrival on Elephant Island, cooking had been impossible in the boats on the ocean and fresh water was in short supply

Mount Frank Houlder, Elephant Island
The highest point on Elephant Island.

Launching the James Caird
from Elephant Island. Setting out to reach South Georgia 800 miles away across the stormiest seas in the world was to become one of the most incredible small boat journeys of all time.

The Stancomb Wills

In Sight of Our Goal - Sighting South Georgia
The James Caird was taken on the journey as it was the boat in best repair. Any resources the crew had left from the Endurance were used to make it more sea-worthy, including cannibalizing some wood from the other boats.

Landing on South Georgia

Cave Cove
On arrival at South Georgia the 6 man crew of the James Caird were exhausted and made a camp in a cave they found. The "Albatross on nests" as marked gave them excellent sustenance.

Surrounding of King Haakon Bay

Plan of Sleeping Berths in Cave
After living on ice floes and in a drenched boat from Elephant Island, the dry cave lined with grass was of the highest luxury even if it was cramped.
