Clarence (Clarry) Hare (1880-1967), a likeable young Christchurch man, talked his way into joining Robert Falcon Scott’s British National Antarctic Expedition (1901-04) as the steward; and at the age of 20 the youngest member Also on board as the ship departed New Zealand: 46 men, 25 dogs, 3 cats, and 50 sheep. Hare’s ‘observant’ diary, now published for the first time, records life on a small wooden ship in sub-zero temperatures without modern comforts, and includes a thrilling account of being lost in a blizzard for 48 hours, during which one man was lost. This is an important addiction to the literature of this expedition.
