Captain Scott's Departure for Antarctica

Two photographs reporting the departure of Captain Scott and his team on board the Terra Nova, bound for Antarctica where they would attempt to reach the South Pole first. Top picture shows the crew on board waving to those they were leaving behind. The bottom picture shows the Siberian ponies taken by Scott to haul supplies. Scott's predominant use of ponies and motor sledges over dogs (used by the successful Norwegian, Amundsen) is cited as one of the reasons Scott failed in his attempt to reach the South Pole first. Date: 1911

Members of the Search Party who found Captain Scott

From left: Sub-lieutenant Gran, Petty-Officer Williamson and Mr E.W. Nelson (biologist), members of the relief party who discovered the bodies of Captain Scott and his companions in the Antarctic Summer of 1912. They sighted Captain Scott's tent on November 12th, 1912, over seven months after the team's tragic death on their return from the South Pole. The men are more lightly clothed than might be expected as the Antarctic November is equivalent to a European June, and so they are wearing ski boots without any fur covering while Williamson is standing in his fur bed socks. Gran is handing out a ration of six biscuits, which are of special nutritive quality and very hard in texture.
