Commander Evans observing an Occulation of Jupiter’, Antarctica, 1910-1912. Edward Evans (1881-1957) was second in command of Captain Scott’s Antarctic expedition of 1910-1913. He led the last supporting party to accompany Scott’s polar team, but was taken seriously ill with scurvy on the return to the expedition’s base. As a result he was sent home aboard the ‘Terra Nova’ in March 1912, but returned the following year to pick up the surviving members of the ill-fated expedition.

Scott was tutored by Herbert Ponting, the renowned photographer who was the camera artist to the expedition, which enabled Scott to take his own memorable pictures before perishing on his return from the South Pole on or after 29th March 1912.
