Bovril for Invalids

Superannuated Bovril.

(I set out from this blog post to try and find the actual picture described - of Antarctic explorer Shackleton "sitting on a big baked beans tin in the Antarctic, feeding Golden Syrup to penguins, and dressed head-to-toe in Burberry in 1910." Here is the gallery site for the show - I do not think the image in question can be found online, though. But I did find this amazing Antarctic conservancy blog at the Natural History Museum website - Golden Syrup!)
