Perce Blackborow[edit]

Untitled[edit]

Wasn't this dude originally a stowaway, who Shackleton decided to put to work rather than turn around and put off?

Plagarized?[edit]

This page appears to be a copy of http://www.solarnavigator.net/history/hms_endurance.htm. Is there permission for this?

I dare to say that it is the other way around. That they copied their content from this article. I feel positive about saying this, as the bulk of what is here in the present form, I wrote it myself long ago, and since then, I have kept an eye on the article. Maybe they should be the ones giving credit to wikipedia. Anagnorisis 04:30, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

Actually, they do have a lot of nerve by saying their page is copyrighted when they copied their content from here. Anagnorisis 04:34, 4 December 2006 (UTC)


I'd say you have a strong case for complaining. On 7th Nov 2005 you changed the distinctive sentence:

 "She was trapped in the Antarctic ice in the Weddell Sea for 281 days,..."

...to read...

 "Endurance drifted for months while remaining beset in the ice in the Weddell Sea and drifted with it."

...which is verbatim what it says here: [1]. According to the www.archive.org site (the wayback machine), the solarnavigator site didn't have an article about the HMS Endurance at that time (although the remainder of their site looked pretty much as it does today). Even as recently as TWBM's most recent archive, (April 2006) there was no article about the Endurance.

It's pretty clear then that SolarNavigator.net (a) Violated the GFDL by not giving us credit for the article and (b) is illegally claiming copyright on text they don't own.

Naughty, naughty. There is a WP: page somewhere for reporting this kind of thing - I don't recall where it is.

I emailed them to tell them to stop doing this. SteveBaker 05:23, 4 December 2006 (UTC)



Both of these pages are plagiarized from Alfred Lansing's book, Endurance. I don't know the appropriate way to report this unfortunately. Nick 08:00 4 September 2013 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.138.15.61 (talk) 12:01, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Alexandra arms.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Alexandra arms.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Image Caption: Frank Hurley close to HMS Endurance trapped in Antarctic pack ice.jpg[edit]

From my reading of this article the ship pictured is 'Endurance', not of Royal Navy origin, and hence not 'HMS'. It may however be 'SS'. Hendersonnoel (talk) 01:13, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

George Marston[edit]

I tried to put [[ ]] round the name on other page in order to create a new page.

I was going to put this external link into it....

http://www.enduranceobituaries.co.uk/marston.htm

[I grew up in East Lyng and his grave is in churchyard there, and was endless fascination for us as children! Why on earth was he there?! Anyway - the above link explains]

When I clicked on what I thought would be a new page for "George Marston" i was directed to a page for another person of same name.

I've no idea how to unpick all this, but no doubt someone else has skills to achieve this!

Good luck!

William (Bakewell or Blakewell)?[edit]

Under 'Crew', the list contained a William Bakewell, while the description beneath it regarding Blackborrow addressed an aid from William Blakewell. Please identify the true name and change it, thanks. 175.142.49.235 (talk) 19:57, 14 December 2011 (UTC)

Modern copy in Sydney[edit]

I think there is a modern copy of the ship on exhibition in Sydney. Is that worth writing about? 194.176.105.138 (talk) 15:40, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Endurance Statistics[edit]
