James Edward Butler Futtit Farrington, known to friends and expedition colleagues by his nickname ‘Fram,’ died at Lisburn, Co. Antrim, on 4 October 2002, aged 94. He was one of a handful of surviving holders of the Polar Medal in Bronze, abolished after 1941. He should also have received the Polar Medal in Silver, but the medal was denied him during his lifetime through a technicality; it has, however, since been awarded to him after his death.
