History

During today the team drew parallel with the point where Capt Scott, Wilson and Bowers perished on or about 29th March 1912 on their way back from the South Pole. Our team are about 17 miles west of that point. To read a cutting from the New York Times about the death of Capt Scott click the cutting below.
