Harrisson, Kennedy and Watson were all members of Mawson's Western party led by the legendary Frank Wild, the only person to be awarded the Polar medal with four bars. Charles Harrisson was the biologist on Mawsons expedition and was also an enormously talented painter. He charted the life of the Western Party through his paintings and drawings. In 1914 he tragically lost his life when the ship he was on was lost with all hands when returning from Macquarie Island.
