Capt Louis Rudd

I worked with him briefly, though couldn’t claim to know him too well - our wives know each other well though.

Absolutely phenomenal achievement, pipped to being the first to cross Antarctica solo by just a couple of days. Done in memory of Lt Col Henry Worsley, who I did know. He died 30 miles short of finishing his own attempt in 2016.

If he isn’t Knighted in the summer there is something wrong.

140kg sled, 935 miles, minus 25-50 degrees C, equivalent of climbing Mt Blanc in 56 days! Just Wow 😮
