Scott's Antarctic expedition. The team of the Terra Nova Expedition standing at the South Pole. From left to right, standing then seated are; Lawrence Oates (1880-1912), Robert Falcon Scott (1868-1912), Edward Wilson (1872-1912), Henry Bowers (1883-1912) and Edgar Evans (1876-1912). The Terra Nova Expedition (officially the British Antarctic Expedition 1910) was led by Scott with the objective of being the first to reach the geographical South Pole. The five-man team reached the pole on 17th January 1912 but found that a Norwegian team led by Roald Admussen (1872-1928) had beaten them to it by 33 days. Scott's entire party died on the return journey. Photographed on 18th January 1912.
