The last journal entry from Captain Robert Scott. National Service of Commemoration at St Paul’s Cathedral to mark one hundred years since this last journal entry: http://www.scott100.org/events/3698/
Thursday, March 29.–Since the 21st we have had a continuous gale
from W.S.W. and S.W. We had fuel to make two cups of tea apiece and
bare food for two days on the 20th. Every day we have been ready to
start for our depot 11 miles away, but outside the door of the tent
it remains a scene of whirling drift. I do not think we can hope for
any better things now. We shall stick it out to the end, but we are
getting weaker, of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more.
For God’s sake look after our people.
