Engraving, Bequest of Sally Kent Gorton,
Scott-Keltie Island. Straits of Franz Josef Land. Here, during the winter, when it was still icy, he left the Quiet Cove two teams with two sailors. The sea didnít leave any signs. He went to Rudolfís Island where there were different expeditions. He was sick when he left; he went to his certain death, in order to show the path to others. Last days he couldnít even stand; he showed with his hand the road. He died at the Cape Brarok as Captain Scott, who didnít reach his house, and who didnít achieve his goal. When we crown the winners, who achieved their goals, weíll always remember those, who went first and died on the way.
