SPEAR17 Wins Award

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.

You can read all about their journey in the following articles:
