THE ADVENTURE BEGINS FOR EXPEDITION 5

Former Royal Marine Commandos Louis Nethercott and Anthony Lambert set off on an adventure of a lifetime, with the aim to be the first humans to cross the planet's 5 largest islands unsupported.

Former Royal Marine Commandos Louis Nethercott and Anthony Lambert are embarking on a world first expedition the likes of which has never been accomplished before. Using the skills and discipline provided to them through their diverse military careers they are setting out to be the first humans to cross the planet's 5 largest islands unsupported, using only human power. Expedition 5.

Due to the unique and varied nature of this challenge their bodies will be pushed beyond endurance, not only will the Expedition 5 team need to be in the highest physical condition possible, they will need every ounce of their determination and will power in order to complete this remarkable undertaking.

Ant from Ex5

Both Louis and Ant have active front line experience from their time serving in Afghanistan. They both feel that the challenges faced by Expedition 5 are insignificant compared to the daily challenges faced by many of their former colleagues wounded in the service of their country.

For this reason they are using Expedition 5 to raise funds for Help For Heroes and The Royal Marines Charity, and in particular to raise awareness for the mental health issues affecting serving and former serving personnel; for Louis and Anthony this is cause particularly close to their hearts.

Bremont is delighted to sponsor this incredible adventure, stay tuned for the latest updates!

THE ISLANDS

Louis and Anthony will travel across Borneo, Papua New Guinea, Madagascar, Greenland and Baffin Island, encountering terrains including jungle, desert, marshes, mountains and fjords, with temperatures potentially ranging from -52°C to +35°C.
