Interesting reading

If you have a few minutes at work each day - having done some reading of accounts of this trip - its interesting to read the daily diary of Scott .

A whole different world back then & the stamina of the men involved is simply stunning.

Excellent BR, Very interesting!What men they were!Inspiring stuff.Seems today that the Mainstream public only seem interested in, and indeed revere,vacuous superficial 'Celebrity'.Which,with such a rich history of great countrymen of ours, is truly a Shame.
