SHACKLETON NEWS ARCHIVE
Shackleton's granddaughter, the Hon. Alexandra Shackleton, has attended many events both at home and abroad as the representative of her grandfather's family and also representing the Society of which she is President. One of her most illustrious trips in recent years was as the honoured guest of the Chilean Navy.
Pilot Pardo's grandsons, Jaime and Fernando Pardo Huerta, expressed their intense emotion at visiting the memorial to their grandfather's ship, recalling his devotion to his naval and Antarctic duties, and both welcomed the chance to meet Shackleton' granddaughter, remembering that as boys they had met her father, Edward, Lord Shackleton, on his visit to Chile back in 1964. Prior to the ceremony, all three paid a visit to the naval commander of the Beagle district, in which Puerto Williams lies.
