Inscription on the wall "Losses to date" from 1916 under one of the bunks at the Cape Evans historic hut. These were Shackelton's "Forgotten Men" who were waiting for him to cross Antarctica, not knowing his ship had been crushed in the ice on the other side of the continent, hence the last name being an abbreviated Shackelton with a question mark after it.
