They fought their way to the Pole,
only to find the Norwegians had beaten them just one month earlier.
On their return, Oates, suffering badly from frostbite,
found it increasingly difficult to keep up.
“On his 32nd birthday – March 17th –
thinking that the only salvation for the party lay in his self sacrifice,
he deliberately walked out to his death during a blizzard
in a noble endeavour to save his three companions … “
“Scott wrote of it in his diary:
‘It was the act of a brave man and an English gentleman.
We all hope to meet the end with a similar spirit, and assuredly the end is not far.”
Days later Scott, Wilson and Bowers died.
“The great leader who, having had no food for a whole week,
was yet man enough to write in defiance of death:
‘How much better has this all been than lounging in too great comfort at home.”
All will be coming to the Sherborne Antiques and Flea Market
