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.
