The James Caird Society (JCS), established in l994 and a registered charity, is the only institution that exists to preserve the memory, honour the remarkable feats of discovery in the Antarctic and commend the outstanding qualities of leadership associated with the name of Sir Ernest Shackleton, KCVO (l874-l922), especially during the ill-fated but glorious Endurance Expedition.
The society provides a wealth of experience and insight into the life and times of Sir Ernest Shackleton. The president of the JCS is The Hon. Alexandra Shackleton, Shackleton’s Grandaughter.
As a society, they are passionate about supporting groups and individuals with the delivery of teaching and learning regarding Shackleton. Further information regarding this can be found via the following link:
