Caption: Robert Forde (1877-1959), Irish explorer and British Royal Navy petty officer, next to a laden sledge wearing a harness for hauling. Forde served during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition, the primary expedition objectives were scientific. Led by Robert Falcon Scott, the shore party of 34 spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Scott and four others died in 1912 returning from their attempt to be the first to reach the South Pole. Forde helped lay two depots, and was sledge master for the second Western Party journey in 1911. Photographed in 1911 by Herbert George Ponting.
