The SS Terra Nova, a large and powerful steam whaler, was seconded from the seal fishery in Newfoundland as relief ship for the British National Antarctic Expedition (1901-1904) and for the US Fiala-Ziegler Expedition (1903-1905) Her most famous role was for three years as expedition ship for Captain Scott's British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). This covers the 60-year history of the ship from construction in Dundee, Scotland in 1884 to her loss in 1943 off Greenland.
