Pocket chronometer from the Franklin expedition
A relic of Sir John Franklin's last expedition 1845-1848. A pocket chronometer number 980 found in an abandoned boat at Erebus Bay, King William Island, in May 1859 by the McClintock Search Expedition 1857-1859. It was issued to HMS 'Terror' in 1845. Lieutenant John Irving wrote to his sister Kate on 10 July 1845 'I have charge of our chronometers, which are little clocks. I have to wind them up and compare them, and write an account of their goings on - there are ten of them in each ship'.
