St Paul’s to mark centenary of Scott

29 March 2012
____________________________________
 

Today, a decade after British explorer Robert Falcon Scott perished on 29 March 1912 in his quest to be the first man to plant a flag and take azimuth readings at the South Pole – and the Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen had beaten him to it- Scott is honoured in St. Paul's cathedral in London.

Robert Falcon Scott was born on 6 June 1868 and he became a naval cadet at the age of 13, serving on Royal Navy ships through the 1880s and 1890s. Gaining the support of the prestigious Royal Geographical Society, he was appointed to lead Britain’s 1901-04 National Antarctic Expedition.
