Footnotes

  • A poignant momento for Lieutenant E.R.G.R. "Teddy" Evans, who with Leading Stoker William Lashly and P.O. Tom Crean had formed the last of the supporting teams to be sent back by Scott, as he commenced the final push for the South Pole. During the return journey Evans went down with scurvy, and tried to persuade Crean and Lashly to leave him behind. Instead they strapped him to a sledge and man-hauled him to within four or five day's march of Hut Point. From there Crean set out to collect help, while Lashly stayed to look after Evans. Evans' saviours were both awarded the Albert Medal.
