An Antarctic Calamity

Scott's 'Message to the Public' as seen in 'The Colonist' 12 February 1913.

Thanks to Paulie for leading me to discover the National Library of New Zealand's Papers Past service.After reading his blog post obviously the first thing I did was jump on there and look up any records from the Terra Nova's return to New Zealand in February 1913. Its interesting to read it as it was, at the time, to the public.

Well, its interesting if you are me, at least.

You can read it here.


  1. Awesome blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?

    I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost
    on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a
    paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any tips? Kudos!
