Len Hussey – member of Ernest Shackleton expedition

In Year 5, as part of our topic about Ernest Shackleton, we were privileged to have a visit from John Hussey, whose Great Uncle Len Hussey was part of the expedition team accompanying Ernest Shackleton to the Antarctic.   Len Hussey had the very important job of meteorologist on the expedition,  and was one of the men  successfully brought back alive after an amazing feat of rescue when the expedition went wrong.  The rest of Mr Hussey’s life was very interesting and inspirational also – clearly a very impressive and capable individual.
