The Centenary of the Terra Nova

29 Dec

Many, many events have celebrated or are to celebrate, this centenary:

On June 15 2010, The Captain Scott Society celebrated the centenary of the ‘Terra Nova’ sailing from Cardiff and in June 2011 Plymouth celebrated some of the scientific findings of Scott’s last expedition. Many other places with connections with the expedition plan to honour the memory of the ‘Terra Nova’ expedition of 1910-1913.

The diary of these events can be found at: wwwScott100centenary:celebrating 100 years since Terra Nova.

I will be attending the Swansea celebrations of the local Welsh hero, Edgar Evans on 17.18th February. There is to be a service at St Mary’s Church on the 17th and on the 18th there will be a book launch for my book ‘Captain Scott’s Invaluable Assistant,  Edgar Evans’ in the Swansea Museum.

I look forward to this, also to a celebration in Gloucester Cathedral and a service in Cheltenham College to be held in memory of Dr E.A.Wilson. This is to be followed by a re-dedication of the Wilson statute in central Cheltenham which was sculpted by Scott’s wife, Kathleen Bruce. I am to give a talk to the College about their famous Old Boy.

Wherever you are, I hope you will be able to enjoy some of the planned events.
