Abstract

The Steam Yacht Aurora made three voyages to the Antarctic and two to the sub-Antarctic during the Australasian Antarctic Expedition (AAE) 1911–1914. All told, 56 men served as members of the crew on these voyages. Most served on one or two voyages only, with just five men (four officers and one seaman) serving on all five. While the officers are reasonably well documented many of the seamen remain unknown though recent research has uncovered details of some of these unsung heroes of the AAE.
