About

An experienced explorer, Franklin had served on three previous Arctic expeditions, the latter two as commanding officer. His fourth and last expedition of 1845 with 'Erebus' and 'Terror', undertaken when he was 59, aimed to traverse the last unnavigated section of the North-West Passage. The entire expedition complement, Franklin and 128 men, died after their ships became icebound in Victoria Strait near King William Island in the Canadian Arctic.
