The coat worn by Nelson, at the Battle of Trafalgar, 1845. Creator: Unknown

The coat worn by Nelson, at the Battle of Trafalgar, 1845. Part of the uniform of Admiral Horatio Nelson who was killed during the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. "The coat is the undress uniform of a vice-admiral, lined with white silk, with lace on the cuffs, and epaulettes. Four stars - of the Orders of the Bath, St. Ferdinand and Merit, the Crescent, and St. Joachim - are sewn on the left breast, as Nelson habitually wore them; which disproves the story, that he purposely adorned himself with his decorations on going into battle! The course of the fatal ball is shown by a hole over the left shoulder, and part of the epaulette is torn away; which agrees with Dr. Sir William Beattie's account of Lord Nelson's death, and with the fact that pieces of the bullion and pad of the epaulette adhered to the ball...The coat and waistcoat are stained in several places with the hero's blood." From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII

Southern Party 1912, (1913). Artist: Frank Debenham

Southern Party 1912, (1913). Chief steward W Archer, steward FJ Hooper, biologist Edward Nelson, surgeon Edward Atkinson, zoologist Apsley Cherry-Garrard, stoker William Lashly, petty officer Tom Crean, ski expert Tryggve Gran, petty officers Thomas Williamson and Patrick Keohane, physicist Charles Wright, dog handler Dmitrii Girev. The final expedition of British Antarctic explorer Captain Robert Falcon Scott (1868-1912) left London on 1 June 1910 bound for the South Pole. The Terra Nova Expedition, officially the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913), included a geologist, a zoologist, a surgeon, a photographer, an engineer, a ski expert, a meteorologist and a physicist among others. Scott wished to continue the scientific work that he had begun when leading the Discovery Expedition to the Antarctic in 1901-04. He also wanted to be the first to reach the geographic South Pole. Scott, accompanied by Dr Edward Wilson, Captain Lawrence Oates, Lieutenant Henry Bowers and Petty Officer Edgar Evans, reached the Pole on 17 January 1912, only to find that the Norwegian expedition under Amundsen had beaten them to their objective by a month. Delayed by blizzards, and running out of supplies, Scott and the remainder of his team died at the end of March. Their bodies and diaries were found eight months later. From Scott's Last Expedition, Volume II. [Smith, Elder & Co. London, 1913]
