The image of cricket being played in Canada's far north, "Situation of H.M. Fury and Hecla at Iglolik", has been submitted to by Michael Bravo, who is an Ethno-philosopher; Historian of Science, and a.Lecturer in Geography at Cambridge University with duties at the Scott Polar Research Institute . Michael was born in Ottawa and graduated from Ottawa University. He wrote, "I have used the image from time to time when I am giving public lectures about the Arctic explorers.".
