Lieutenant-Commander Quintin Theodore Petroc Molesworth Riley is only in his mid-30s but has already made something of a name for himself in Britain. A Cambridge man, he participated in three expeditions to the polar regions over the course of the past decade: the British Arctic Air Route Expedition (1931-1932); the Watkins Arctic expedition to Greenland (1933); and the British Graham Land Expedition to Antarctica, led by John Rymill (1934-1937).
Riley is also a member of the prestigious Scots Guards (5th Battalion) and enjoys contacts with members of the British intelligence service. The Guards are amongst Britain’s oldest and most prestigious regiments, having served with distinction in countless conflicts over the centuries. As such, they are the most senior and most experienced troops in the British Army, often used to spearhead attacks thanks to their fearsome reputations. When not on the battlefield, these units are tasked with ceremonial duties, such as the protection of the monarch, but in combat they are a force to be reckoned with.
