All members are invited to hear the Hon. R D Nicholson launch this study of a man who went in search of adventure. Come and hear about an interesting life! ‘Irvine Gaze’s great-niece, Vivienne Stewart, is to be congratulated on her initiative in commissioning this book’, writes Margaret Medcalf in her Foreword.
The book concentrates on Gaze’s time from 1914 to 1917 as part of the Ross Sea Shore Party which was responsible for establishing supply depots to sustain Ernest Shackleton and his party on their proposed but ill-fated expedition to cross the Antarctic continent from the Weddell Sea. Gaze wrote a diary of his time in the Antarctic and it is used to good effect to tell this story of a man who grew up in Western Australia.
