Robert Falcon Scott, British Antarctic explorer, 1914. Portrait of Captain Scott (1868-1912 )in naval uniform from a trade calendar for 1914. Scott's final expedition left London on 1 June 1910 bound for the South Pole. They reached the Pole on 17 January 1912, only to find that the Norwegian expedition under Amundsen had beaten them to their objective by a month. Delayed by blizzards, and running out of supplies, Scott and his team died at the end of March. Their bodies and diaries were found eight months later.
