The Ross Sea Party (1914-1917) had the task of setting supply depots from McMurdo Sound to the Beardmore Glacier to provide supplies for the Trans-Continental party led by Shackleton.
Most of their supplies were on the Aurora and when she broke free and drifted away from Antarctica they were marooned. They survived by using supplies let in the hut by the Scott expedition in 1912.
