Terra Nova Winter by zulumike Terra Nova Winter by zulumike
The Terra Nova Expedition (19101912), officially the British Antarctic Expedition 1910, was led by Robert Falcon Scott with the objective of being the first to reach the geographical South Pole. Scott and four companions attained the pole on 17 January 1912, where they found that a Norwegian team led by Roald Amundsen had preceded them by 33 days. Scott's entire party died on the return journey from the pole; some of their bodies, journals, and photographs were discovered by a search party eight months later.
While searching for the Northwest Passage, more than 30 vessels were severely nipped - they were trapped and spent winters in the Arctic. Several were crushed or disappeared altogether.

Top notch work my friend. I've just finished reading "The Terror" a fictional account of Franklin's lost Arctic expedition ([link]) and this is how imagined the ships to be trapped in the ice.

I am amazed of these stories of exploration as they searched for the "Northwest Pasaage".

Also check out the story of Schackleford's ordeal; amazing the endurance and leadership of this individual.

Thanks as Always my friend.

Cheers, Mike

I have been reading about these expeditions of the Artic and Anartica. Shackleton's trek of suvival is amazing. Everyone should read about what he did and his dedication and leadership to his men.

I agree. The pictures are amazing too. They did have a photographer with them and he recorded much of the destruction of the Endurance.
