Pennell served as navigator and captain during Capt. Robert Scott’s British Antarctic Expedition (1910-13) aboard the Terra Nova. Harrowfield’s book commemorates the centenary of the death of Captain Scott and his party on return from the South Pole in 1912 along with the mysterious arrival during the night of the Terra Nova to Oamaru, NZ in 1913. It was Pennell, along with Dr. Edward Atkinson, who first went ashore to telegraph the news of the demise of the Southern Party. Myths associated with this event are discussed, eliminated and media reports questioned. The association Waitaki Boys' High School has with Antarctica along with Oamaru's on-going link with the continent is described. Includes a foreward by HRH Princess Anne, Patron UK Antarctic Heritage Trust, and an introductory essay by Falcon Scott, grandson of Captain Scott. A most interesting and informative work.
