Diary entry: 9 - It is my turn on nightwatch. Everyone else is asleep while I stay awake at night and sleep in the day. I have just done my rounds of the ship and the ice around the ship to check everything is safe. It is lonely and sometimes a bit scary on nightwatch.
Explanatory caption: The nightwatchman returns after having made his rounds of the ship and of the ice around the ship, Endurance, 1915.
