Footnotes

  • This plan is inscribed by Alfred Buchanan Cheetham (1867-1918), as "Alfred", to his nephew Cyril, a resident of Penarth who was presumably present to see the Terra Nova depart from Cardiff dock in June, 1910. Cheetham was boatswain on the expedition, having previously served in the Morning on Scott's first expedition (1902), and as third officer and boatswain with Shackleton on both the Nimrod and later Endurance.

    A similar plan is reproduced in Michael Tarver's S.S. Terra Nova (1884-1943): From the Arctic to the Antarctic... (Pendragon Maritime Publications, 2006, p.29).

    Provenance: Alfred Cheetham (gifted to his nephew); Bonhams, 24 June 2004, lot 52.
