Armitage was second in command of Scott’s British National Antarctic Expedition (1901-04). He presents a lighter side of the expedition than in Scott’s official account and covers his sledge journeys, during two seasons, to the western mountains and ascent of Victoria Land. Prior to this expedition he was a member of the Jackson-Harmsworth Expedition (1894) to Franz Josef Land which rescued Fridtjof Nansen and Hjalmar Johansen. Scarce.
