Here's a brief entry from Orde-Lees' journal written on the way to South Georgia...

It is splendid having Sir Ernest on board, everything works like clockwork and one knows "just where one is". Mr. Wild, the second in command, actually tells us off for our duties and Sir Ernest settles any little difficulties.

A month earlier, while at Buenos Aires, Orde-Lees wrote, "The crew, or at least 10 out of the 12 are behaving most disloyally, going out every day on the drink and leaving us, the staff, to do all the work. This shows something wrong somewhere, but it will all be put right when Sir Ernest arrives, thank goodness."
