Historical Notes: Joseph Stenhouse was chief officer of the Aurora, Shackleton's second ship with the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition. Worsley and Stenhouse returned to Britain in April 1917 and reported for duty with the Royal Navy (both were Royal Navy Reserve officers). In July Worsley was given command of the 'mystery ship' PQ61 with Stenhouse as his first officer. On September 26 they sank the German submarine UC33 off the South Coast of Ireland, for which action Worsley was awarded the DSO and Stenhouse the DSC. The photograph was probably taken after April 1917 but before they were awarded their decorations in late September that year.
