Statue of Captain Robert Falcon Scott, Antarctic explorer, Portsmouth Harbour, Hampshire. Scott's final expedition left London on 1 June 1910 aboard the 'Terra Nova' bound for the South Pole. He 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.
