Caption: Edward Leicester Atkinson (1881-1929), British Royal Navy surgeon and Antarctic explorer, in November 1911 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) spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Atkinson was in command at base camp after Scott departed for the South Pole at the beginning of November 1911. Scott and four others died in March 1912 on their return journey. Atkinson led the party that found Scott's body on 12 November 1912.
