After a liberal application of my patent Stiffener I resolve to return to the Arctic the following year, renewing my quest to search out the fabled South East passage! Note to self to carry more fruit!

Excerpt from 8 April:

Disaster has struck! We have seemingly sparked of an international incident by unwittingly straying across an invisible border and illegally invading Russia. We have been apprehended by unpleasant belligerent, Bolshevik border guards who have interrogated us all at great length.

Russia is claiming that its sovereign territory has been violated and they have registered a formal complaint with both the Norwegian authorities in Oslo and the British Foreign Office. What balderdash.

Our whole expedition has been halted whilst this ongoing investigation takes place. Determined to maintain a stiff upper lip in the face of extreme adversity, I resort to applying a ration of the ‘Gentleman’s Stiffener’. Blowed if I will allow johnny foreigner to see me drooping and somewhat down in the mouth. What? C.F.

I must admit to being somewhat intrigued by the stories told of this modern day Robin Hood! In the event I should run in to this disreputable rogue I keep about my person an extra jar of my Gentleman’s stiffener. It's a peace offering, a gift that will hopefully convince him of the benefits entailed in the use of my pomade and an added enticement to end his erring ways. C.F.
