Harold Watts was a telegraphist when he joined the Shackleton-Rowett Expedition 1921-22 (Quest), led by Ernest Henry Shackleton, as wireless operator. Setting out from London on 17 September 1921 in the wooden sealer Quest, the expedition reached South Georgia where Shackleton suffered a heart attack and died on 5 January 1922. Frank Wild took command and the expedition continued, briefly exploring the South Sandwich Islands and the Weddell Sea before returning to Britain.
