Abstract

William Frederick Williams was bom in Tasmania in 1866. He joined Ernest Shackleton's British Antarctic Expedition, signing on in the
name of W. Williams, and served as an AB (Able Seaman) on the Steam Yacht Nimrod on her second voyage south (1908-09). On return
to Iasmania he tried his hand at a variety of jobs before settling in the Lakes district of Tasmania as the manager of guest houses catering
for trout fishermen in the 1920s. He retired to Lorne, Victoria, and died in Melbourne in 1964 aged 77.
