Dr Johnson’s book chronicles the relationship that developed between the people of the City of Cardiff, together with its prosperous docks community, and the British Antarctic Expedition 1910 led by Robert Falcon Scott. Its span extends from the first announcement of intent in 1909 to beyond the return of the Expedition to Cardiff in 1913. It records the circumstances of the failure of the City to provide a fitting memorial to the men who died seeking to achieve that Antarctic goal.
