Caption: Edward Wilson (1872-1912), British explorer and zoologist, after returning from the main depot-laying expedition (the Southern Journey) on 13 April 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, a shore party of 33 spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Scott, Wilson and three others died in 1912 returning from the South Pole. This journey was one of several made to prepare for the final march south (starting in November 1911). Scott and Wilson died close to the main depot laid the previous year.
