Caption: Cecil Henry Meares (1877-1937), British explorer and dog handler for 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 March 1912 returning from their journey to the South Pole. Meares and Dimitri Geroff, with their dog teams, had headed south and joined the polar party, but were later sent back by Scott on 11 December 1911. Photographed on 5 January 1912 after reaching the Cape Evans base camp.
