    RIP. You were a real stud, and a generous and true gentleman. You accomplished your goal raising 100k for the Fund.

    May your family be at peace,

    A Calif Admirer

    We are the Pilgrims Master,
    We shall go always a little further,
    It may be beyond that last Blue Mountain Barr’d with Snow,
    Across that Angry or Glimmering Sea.

    Henry You ARE Endeavour

    Hello Henry i do hope you are O.K. and feeling a bit better? you have achieved so much, it is a great inspiration to all of us,
    i have been monitoring your progress with much amazement, it was easy for us to cheer you on, in the comfort of our homes and workplaces and realy not knowing what you were going through, your health is more important but well done! and all on your own!
    I hope to meet you again at a royal geographic meeting/lecture in london,

    Dear Henry,

    Many congratulations on your incredible effort! It is many years since Selwyn, but I recognised your eyebrows (think about it!) in your selfie. Hopefully we can meet up when life is quieter for you.

    Kindest regards, Charles

    You were my company commander in 1 RGJ, you was really hard on us but so fair.. I wish you so much luck. I’m now a WO1 and I believe it’s part to your influence. Keep going, push to the end and swift and bold.

  12. Jane Hamilton says:

    Dear Henry, what a fantastic inspiration you have been on this courageous trip you have undertaken. We, who have followed you, know what a blow you will feel at not finishing to the end, but elements have sort to confound you, and it in no way diminishes your extraordinary achievement. Remember, as with Shackleton, it is not just the finishing of a journey that can inspire……

    Us ordinary mortals know your achievement was GREAT!!

    Love, Janey xx

    Henry, you are an incredible person. I know how disappointing it must be to have come so close to your ultimate physical goal only to have circumstances intervene, but you hit it a bomb, regardless. The amazing contribution your trip has garnered for veterans is tremendous. You should be VERY proud of reaching that goal. Very few humans on Earth would have been able to go as far as you did, alone and under your own steam. Excellent work.
