Hi guys,

 

I read a sentence at speak up magazine and I didn't understand. I tried to find out an explanation at Cambridge Dictionary and it still confused me. Could anybody explain what does the word namely mean?

 

Sepak Up

 

It tells the story of one of the greatest rescue operations in maritime history,namely that of Ernest Shacleton and his crew, during their Antartic expedition of 1914-16.

 

Namely

used when you want to give more detail or be more exact about something you have just said:
We need to get more teachers into the classrooms where they're most needed, namely in high poverty areas.

 

Thanks in advance
