He stopped writing on March 29, 1912 and his diary was found on November 12,1912 in a tent along with his frozen body and those of  Edward Wilson and Henry Bowers. Click on Scott's journal  to read some excerpts describing the hard walk back to the ship waiting to take them back home.

Robert F. Scott has been criticized for his incompetence which led his men to death, but on his expedition centenary his figure and feat is being revised. Roald Amundsen aimed to simply reach the South Pole whereas Robert Scott's expedition was concerned with scientific research as  it is proved by the numerous samples of animals,fish,rocks and plants obtained. In the following video his granddaughter, Dafila Scott, vindicates the valuable aspect of her grandfather's ill-fated adventure.

Robert Scott nd his expedition ship, Terra Nova
On 1910 the SS Terra Nova left Cardiff docklands, heading for the South Pole, with Captain Robert Falcon Scott and members of the British Antarctic Expedition. The previous year, William Davies, editor of the Western Mail  Wales newspaper was planning his own Antarctic Expedition  along with  the naval officer Lieutenant E.R.G.R.Evans and thought they would find support for their project from Cardiff businesses.
Later on, Evans met and joined Robert F. Scott's expedition, bringing with him the support of the editor of The Western Mail. Thanks to  William Davies' influence , Scott's expedition would obtain the government sponsorship and the Welsh shipowners support.
Another Welsh Evans was also in the crew, Petty officer Edgar Evans from Rhossili, Gower. He had been to Antarctica with Scott on his Discovery expedition of 1901-4. He was the first to die on the return march from the South Pole.
The Terra Nova  had arrived in Cardiff from London  to finish preparations for the voyage and take on fuel.They got donations from the coal companies in Cardiff; cooking equipment was supplied by the Welsh Tin Plate Company of Llanelli;  2,500 pounds were raised in the city of Cardiff and more money was accepted from shipowner donors such as Daniel Radcliffe and William J.Tatem. They both helped to raise sponsorship and funds. Cardiff also provided dock facilities for the Terra Nova. For all this Welsh support, Cardiff was declared the Terra Nova's home port and it was there that the vessel returned at the end of the expedition on June 14, 1913
In the collection of the Amguedda Cymru, National Museum Wales, there are three documents, two dating from the start of the expedition and one from the end, bearing the signatures of 27 of the officers, scientists and crew of Scott's expedition
.In 2003 a commemorative sculpture was unveiled in Cardiff Bay, designed by the Cardiff-based sculptor Jonathan William. This  snow-white Scott's Memorial shows Scott on the front point of his ship and his co-explorers half buried in snow. The monument succeeds to depict these explorers' endeavour to follow their goals.
Scott's Memorial in Cardiff Bay

It stands on a compass rose looking at Cardiff Bay from where the ship left. A Norwegian church rises behind, as a poignant reminder that Scott was beaten to the Pole by the Norwegian Roald Amundsen. It was built in 1868 to minister to Norwegian sailors and remained a place of worship until1974.

Captain Scott's memorial commemorates the 100th anniversary of the 'Age of Antartic Discovery' It seems the monument was inspired by modernist architect Gaudí, by using pieces of ceramic tiles.
The Welshman, Edgard Evans, who was in charged of the sledging equipment is depicted wearing glasses.

(1) .......................... my dues, time after time;
(2) .......................... my sentence, but committed no crime
And bad mistakes (3) ........................... a few
(4) ........................... my share of sand kicked in my face,
But (5) ................................ through
We are the champions, my friends
And we'll keep on fighting to the end.
We are the champions (twice)
No time for losers 'cos
We are the champions of the world 

(6) ..................... my bows and my curtain call
(7) ....................... me fame and fortune and everything that goes
with it; I thank you all,
But (8) ............................. no bed of roses, no pleasure cruise.
I consider it a challenge before the whole human race 
And I'm not gonna lose
CHORUS (three times)
