Caption: Scott's South Pole party. Four members of the Antarctic polar party led by Robert Falcon Scott in 1911 and 1912, eating in a tent around a stove. From left: Evans, Bowers, Wilson and Scott. The fifth member, Oates, is not present. After a trek of more than two months, the group of five reached the South Pole on 17 January 1912 , but found that the Norwegian party led by Roald Amundsen had arrived before them. This attempt to be the first to reach the South Pole was part of the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913, also Terra Nova Expedition). They were part of a shore party of 33. Scott and the others in the polar party died on their return journey.
