Congratulations to the SPEAR17 for winning the Military Awards 2017 ‘Inspiring Others’ category, otherwise known as ‘the Millies’.
The SPEAR 17 expedition (supported by the Ulysses Trust) consisted of a team of British Army reservists who completed a coast-to-coast crossing of Antarctica earlier this year.
Upon completing their 1,100-mile expedition, the team of British Army reservists became the first British and the first military team to complete a full, unsupported traverse of the freezing desert continent.
