Northwest Passage Expedition patch
Beginning in Vancouver in June 1940, Royal Canadian Geographical Society Fellow Henry Larsen led the second ever expedition through the Northwest Passage (and the first west-to-east). His crew sailed RCMP schooner St. Roch on a treacherous southerly route, where they were trapped in the ice for two winters. They reached Halifax in October 1942. Own this one-of-a-kind expedition patch designed for the Royal Canadian Geographical Society's 90th anniversary.
