Antarctic Expedition

The Antarctic Expedition, 1910–13, was led by Captain Robert Falcon Scott with the main objective being the first to reach the South Pole, and there to plant the British flag. After many setbacks, Scott and four teammates arrived at the pole on 17 January 1912; however, Norwegian Roald Amundsen and his team had beaten them there by 34 days. Scott and his men perished on their return from the pole. (The photos are not necessarily in chronological order expect for the start and the end of the expedition.)
