Scott’s medals

22 Oct

Ursula Wells has written to me to draw attention to the article on the British Museum website (dated 19 Oct 2012), about the museum having acquired the 24 medals awarded to Captain Scott during his life and posthumously.

Scott was hugely admired for years, then the pendulum swung in the other direction. This has been redressed magnificently this year, the centenary of his death.
