Caption: Antarctic expedition fishing. British Royal Navy surgeon Edward Atkinson (1881-1929) and expedition cook Thomas Clissold working in the Antarctic winter night by lamplight to haul in a fishtrap from a hole cut in the ice 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 (including Atkinson and Clissold) 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. Photographed on 28 May 1911 by Herbert George Ponting.
