March 2012

March brought us Trevor Cornford with a bewildering insight into Captain Scott’s last Antartic Expedition subtitled “Triumph and Tragedy.” The array of material/letters that Trevor has gathered from all the participants in the expedition is astonishing. We saw private letters from Scott, Bowers, Evans and Wilson. We also saw a letter from Amundsen after he had beaten Scott to the Pole – quite an amazing afternoon.
