VISIT TO THE SHIP 'THE DISCOVERY'

Finally, after many years of waiting, Jerrard visited his Great Great Grandfathers ship 'The Discovery'. The ship is lying in Dundee and was once captained by George Strong Nares in a bid to reach the Pole in 1875. Although the Pole was not reached, Captain Nares is remembered for achieving the fartherst north at that time and for his great services to navigation and mapping of the Oceans.

Jerrard has a keen interest not only in George Nares but in all polar exploration.
