The Best of the Best


'Scott of the Antarctic'


'Scott of the Antarctic' was a naval officer and explorer, who died attempting to be the first to reach the South Pole.


Robert Falcon Scott was born on 6 June 1868 in Devonport. He became a naval cadet at the age of 13 and served on a number of Royal Navy ships in the 1880s and 1890s. He attracted the notice of the Royal Geographical Society, which appointed him to command the National Antarctic Expedition of 1901-1904. The expedition - which included Ernest Shackleton - reached further south than anyone before them and Scott returned to Britain a national hero.
