Caption: Antarctic pemmican rations. British explorers Atkinson, Bowers and Cherry-Garrard, members of the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913), preparing pemmican rations on 23 June 1911, the day after a celebratory Midwinter Day Dinner held in their base camp hut. The menu the previous day had included exotic foods. Pemmican is a concentrated mixture of fat and protein used by polar explorers. Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition and led by Robert Falcon Scott, the shore party of 33 spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Scott, Bowers and three others died in 1912 returning from their journey to the South Pole.
