CAPTAIN SCOTT'S ANTARCTIC EXPEDITION DRAWINGS ON SHOW

One of the drawings made during Captain Scott's ill-fated expedition to the Antarctic
Drawings from Captain Scott's ill-fated expedition to the Antarctic in 1912 are to go on public display for the first time from next month.
Pencil sketches depict the moment the explorer and his team discovered Norwegian rival Roald Amundsen had beaten them to the South Pole.
Team member Edward Wilson drew Amundsen's flag which told them they were not first to reach the pole.
The exhibition will be held at the Queen's Gallery at Buckingham Palace.
Official photographs, artefacts and memorabilia from Captain Scott and Sir Ernest Shackleton's expeditions will feature in the expedition.
