Lieutenant Evans surveying in the Antarctic, 1911-1912. Evans using the 4 inch theodolite used to locate the South Pole on Captain Scott's Antarctic expedition of 1910-1913. Scott and four companions 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 on their return 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.
